Caribbean Stir-Fried Shrimp

Recipe by  

"Stir-fries are speedy, but this one-skillet meal is even faster because all of the vegetables come right out of your pantry. There's no chopping, no peeling, and very little cooking.  But the ease and convenience don't mean you're sacrificing flavor.  The combination of shrimp, canned tomatoes, peppers, and pineapple is sweet, tart, and dynamic."

  1. Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add half the oil and heat until smoking, about 10 seconds. Add the onion and stir-fry until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add the pineapple and stir fry gently until pineapple browns lightly, about 1 minute. Remove pineapple to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Add remaining oil to the pan. Add shrimp and stir-fry until opaque, about 1 minute. Add garlic and red pepper, if desired, and stir fry for 10 seconds.
  3. Add the tomatoes, chilies, and reserved pineapple and stir fry until heated through, about
  4. 1 minute. Stir in soy sauce and serve over rice, if desired.

  • Tip:  We've kept the spiciness light (the canned chilies are mild) and the pinch of crushed pepper flakes is optional.  If you want to add a little more heat, increase the pepper.  Or for a completely family friendly version, eliminate the red pepper flakes, and your stir-fry will be as mild as a tropical breeze.

I made this for dinner tonight and both my boyfriend and I loved it! I gave it a mexican flare by leaving out the soy sauce and putting this delicious combo in tortillas with a little shredded cheese and lettuce! I will definitely be making this again, so tasty and very healthy!

This dish is very colorful and easy to make, plus it does have a good taste, but it felt like something was missing... more salt? Not sure

Awesome recipe! I made as directed but added the jerk seasoning as suggested by another reviewer. In addition I chopped a green pepper and lightly stir fried it with the onion so it wasn't too mushy. This added color and another veggie and tasted great too. I also sprinkled a little tobasco on top of my dish, 'cause I like it extra spicy. A nice recipe for a quick weeknight dinner - the whole family loved it!

Very yummy recipe as is, but if you're used to strong flavors, you may want to add more seasonings. As we have two small children, neither of whom like shrimp, I actually used about 1/2 lb of shrimp and 2 chicken breasts cut into 1" cubes. For some extra flavor I added approx. 2-3 Tablespoons of Jerk seasoning, which went really well with this recipe. Family loved it, 4 yr old, 17 month old and finicky husband! Extremely easy to make and will be in with our regular rotation. Also good the next day as leftovers.

I loved it. My husband and I almost ate the whole thing ourselves. It's very tasty, but not too hot! Perfect for my tastes.

HUGE HIT but don't forget to cut the tails off the shrimp (i forgot) My family love it i did add some stuff because i felt it wouldn't have been enough vegies...I added fresh green beans little over 1 cup, 1/2 cup of bean sprouts, and small can of water chestnuts i just but these things in with the onions. Turned out great and low in calories!
