Tropical Shrimp Rice Bowl

Tasty, delicious, easy and quick--a perfect recipe for a busy weeknight dinner.  This recipe is served over rice mixed with a little cilantro for zest.  The sauce has just a touch of chili powder to spice it up.
I added a cup of green peas to this or edamame would be great too.
  • 3 cups cooked rice
  • ½ Tbsp fresh minced cilantro
  • Salt
  • Shrimp:
  • ½ lb shrimp
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp pineapple juice
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • Salt
  • Sauce:
  • 8 oz can of pineapple chunks, save 2 T. of juice for the shrimp
  • ½ cup pineapple juice
  • 1½ Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • Zest from 1 lime
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp fresh, minced cilantro
Mix shrimp with lime juice, pineapple juice and chili powder and let sit for 20 minutes.  Heat a fryig pan with a Tablespoon of oil.  Add shrimp and saute until pink.  Remove from pan and add all sauce ingredients.  Simmer 5-10 minutes until thickened.  Serve over rice that has been mixed with the cilantro.
