Sweet Pineapple Shrimp

My Sweet Pineapple Shrimp is definitely inspired by my many trips to Hawaii. I’ve tried so many shrimp dishes during my trips that I try to recreate a lot of them at home. This Sweet Pineapple Shrimp is one of my favorites. I love the sweet and tartness of the pineapple with the plump shrimp. I add a little sweet chili sauce to put all together and serve it with rice. The sweet chili sauce I used is not spicy at all, even my kids love it. The rice or quinoa is a must because it absorbs some of the delicious sauce. I prefer white rice, but brown rice would work as well. I left the tail on the shrimp for aesthetics, but if you’re serving this to kids I would cook without the stems. Cutting the pineapple for serving bowls is really easy. Check out the video link below to make your own pineapple bowls. Just remember to use a sharp knife. I used a large knife, but a pairing knife might be easier to work with.
