“Sweet and sour” is such an elementary culinary concept, it's easy to forget how revolutionary combining the mouth-puckering “sour” and the saccharine highs of “sweet” was to our forefathers. Elementary, my dear Watson, but that doesn't make it simple… the complex flavors of coconut, pineapple, rice vinegar, and teriyaki enrobe the succulent shrimp, tender vegetables, and noodles. All of this for just a weeknight meal? Well, when you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however impossible, must be true.
