Pineapple Shrimp Stir-Fry

After the rush of all the holiday cooking many are looking for some easy meals to prepare so there will be more time to spend with the family. This recipe was found in a children's cookbook, so you know it's going to be simple to make, but it will also please grown-up tastes. Pineapple Shrimp Stir-Fry comes from one of my granddaughter's favorite cookbooks, Pillsbury Fast and Healthy Meals for Kids.




Pineapple Shrimp Stir-Fry

1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup julienne cut carrots
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (8 oz.) can pineapple chunks, drained
2/3 cup sweet and sour sauce
Hot cooked rice, if desired (I used Royal Blend Texmati quick cooking)

Heat a nonstick wok over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and sprinkle with salt and pepper; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add carrots and bell pepper, cooking and stirring 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are pink and vegetables are crisp-tender.
Add the drained pineapple chunks along with the sweet and sour sauce, cooking and stirring 2 to 3 minutes longer or until pineapple is hot. Serve over hot cooked rice. Makes 4 servings.




This is a colorful and healthy family meal, and it is a speedy one to get on the table. Maybe there's even a youngster at your house who would enjoy being the sous chef for this family fare.
