Like so many of our meals, the first time I made this recipe, it was inspired by the ingredients we had on hand, plus a craving or two.

Pineapple Shrimp

Pineapple and shrimp are a huge favorite around here. My middle son had been asking for shrimp, there was a sale on pineapple, and I had a jar of Sweet and Spicy Homemade Barbecue Sauce just waiting to be used. The combination of flavors was even better than I had hoped and it quickly became a family favorite.

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve made this Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Shrimp Stir Fry. Every time shrimp is on sale, I start craving this recipe, Kielbasa and Shrimp Fried Rice, or Chili Garlic Shrimp (a cookbook favorite).

We LOVE shrimp and yet, I keep repeating those three recipes.

As much as I love our favorites, I found some great new shrimp recipes to try. How about these Dynamite Shrimp Grain Bowls? In the mood for tacos? Rosemary Citrus Shrimp Tacos sound pretty amazing. Thai Shrimp Lettuce Wraps and Spicy Shrimp Guacamole Bites both need to happen in my kitchen as well.

But first? You really do need to try this Sweet and Spicy Pineapple Shrimp Stir Fry. Buttery sauteed shrimp, tangy sweet barbecue sauce, crisp hot peppers, and sweet pineapple combine in a truly irresistible meal. The fact you can make it in just minutes? That just makes it better.

Kitchen Tip: I use my favorite skillet and this spatula to make this recipe.

Pineapple Shrimp Stir Fry

  1. Rinse the shrimp and pat dry with a paper towel. In a large skillet, over high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add the shrimp and spread across the pan in a single layer. Let it cook without touching it for about 1 minute.
  2. Flip the shrimp over and cook an additional minute. When the shrimp is light pink and cooked through, remove to a plate.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-high and add a drizzle of oil to the hot pan. Toss the peppers in the oil and let them cook until they are slightly browned and barely softened, about 2 minutes. Add the pineapple, toss with the peppers, and let it soften slightly, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the barbecue sauce, stir, and increase the heat to high. When it starts to simmer, return the shrimp to the pan, toss everything together to coat well, and cook for about a minute as the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat and add the green onions. Serve by itself or over rice.
