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 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 out the seed portion.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Seafood 145° F |
  • 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, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using jumbo shrimp, follow same instructions.

  • If using diced chicken, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 2, 3, and 5, patting dry and cooking, stirring occasionally, until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 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, 18-20 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. 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.

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

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

  5. 5

    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. 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!
