How to make Spicy Pineapple Shrimp

Here’s what you need:

  • Raw jumbo shrimp
  • Pineapple slices cubed
  • Red and yellow bell pepper chopped
  • Spring onion chopped
  • Scotch bonnet
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Ginger powder
  • Soy sauce
  • White vinegar
  • Honey
  • Corn starch

Here’s what to do:

First, brown your pineapples on both sides, remove from the pan then part cook your shrimp so they get a nice golden color. Don’t over cook the shrimp you just want the outside to sear a bit or they just look bland.

Once you remove your shrimps from the pan, get the veggies started. When they are nearly cooked add your seasonings and other ingredients, returning the pineapple and shrimps back to the pan.

Lastly, you add in the cornstarch. For best results mix the cornstarch with a little water before adding to the pan. As soon as the sauce thickens up, taste to see if it is to your desired flavor and heat then remove from heat and its ready to serve.

This recipe is for 2 maybe 4 people so if you have big eaters i suggest doubling up.

I’d love to hear from you!

Yields2 Servings
Prep Time7 minsCook Time13 minsTotal Time20 mins

 1 Pack Raw Jumbo shrimp
 1 tsp Old bay seasoning
 1 ½ tsp Ginger powder
 23 Pineapple slices (tin) cubed
 2 Spring onion chopped

Start by washing and de-veining the shrimp. Then, chop your vegetables preparing them for the pan.

Next, heat the saucepan and add a splash of oil. Place the pineapples in, browning them on each side. Once they have browned, remove them from the pan and add in the shrimp for the same process.

Cook the shrimp for 2 minutes or just enough to brown each side. Remove from the pan and put in your vegetables.

Saute the vegetables for 7 minutes, or until cooked to your preference. Throw in all of your seasonings then the soy sauce, honey and vinegar. Now return the pineapple and shrimp back to the pan.

Afterwards, incorporate your cornstarch (dissolve in a little water prior to adding to pan) and allow the liquid to thicken. When the sauce has thickened turn off the heat and serve.

This will serve 2 - 4 people.

I served this with white rice but you can have coconut rice, fried rice or quinoa with this dish.
