Sweet chili and shrimp go hand in hand, like peanut butter and jelly. But better, because this is for grown-ups, and there are no yucky crusts of the sandwich left over. But that's not the only sweetness: pineapple brings its own tart delight. And this meal is super quick and easy to prepare? Sweet. Tip: Best way to remove ribs and seeds from a red bell pepper? Cut off top and bottom of pepper, then either carefully cut or tear our the seed portion

You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
Cook the Rice
Bring a small pot with rice, a pinch of salt, and 1½ cups water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner and set aside.
While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut green bell pepper into ¼" dice.
Peel and cut shallot into ¼" dice.
Trim and slice white portions of green onions into ½" pieces. Thinly slice remaining green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.
Pat shrimp dry.
If using flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. If using chicken thighs, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt. (Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.) Season either all over with a pinch of salt.
Cook the Shrimp
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Working in batches, add shrimp to hot pan and cook on one side until browned, 2-3 minutes.
Transfer to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat. Shrimp will finish cooking in a later step.If using chicken thighs or flank steak, follow same instructions, stirring occasionally until browned and no pink remains, 4-6 minutes.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Make the Sauce
Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, shallot, green bell pepper, white portions of green onions, and pineapple to hot pan. Cover, and stir occasionally until tender, 3-4 minutes.
Str in tomato paste, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of pepper. Bring to a boil.
Finish the Dish
Once boiling, add shrimp and any accumulated juices to pan. Stir occasionally until sauce coats shrimp and shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes.
If using chicken thighs, follow same instructions and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 1-2 minutes. If using flank steak, follow same instructions and cook until heated through, 1-2 minutes.
