  1. Heat a wok with cooking oil (portion for cabbage) over medium-high heat. Add cabbage and saute until tender but still slightly crunchy, 7 to 8 minutes. (Add some water if the pan starts to look dry.) Add ginger and some salt and saute for 1 minute more. Fold in toasted sesame oil and sesame seeds. Taste and season with some salt. Transfer cabbage to a serving dish and cover to keep warm.
  2. Return wok to heat and add first portion of oil (for fried cauliflower rice). Add shrimp and saute until shrimp are opaque and just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Season shrimp with some salt as it cooks. Set shrimp aside and return wok to heat.
  3. To heated wok, add second portion of oil (for fried cauliflower rice) and then white parts of green onions and carrots. Cook, stirring frequently, until carrots are tender, 5 to 6 minutes.
