A note about serious food allergies

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 leftover. But sweet chili sauce is 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 bell pepper? Cut off top and bottom of pepper, then either carefully cut or tear out the seed portion.

  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using scallops, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until scallops reach minimum internal temperature, 1-2 minutes per side.

  • If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 3, stirring occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    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, 15-18 minutes. Remove from burner and set aside. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut green bell pepper into ¼" dice. Trim and slice white portions of green onions into ½" pieces. Thinly slice remaining green portions of green onions, keeping white and green portions separate. Peel and cut shallot into ¼" dice. Pat shrimp dry.

  3. 3

    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 shrimp to a plate. Shrimp will finish cooking in a later step. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    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. Uncover, and stir in tomato paste, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of pepper until combined. Bring to a boil.

  5. 5

    Finish Shrimp and Finish Meal

    Once boiling, add shrimp and any accumulated juices to hot pan. Stir occasionally until sauce coats shrimp and shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping rice with shrimp mixture and garnishing with green portions of green onions and crispy rice noodles. Bon appétit!
