Cook Time6 mins
Total Time16 mins
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 2 - 3 persons

Ingredients

  • 1 lb shrimp peeled & cleaned
  • 1 cup pineapple fresh
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons rosemary minced
  • cooked rice optional to serve with shrimp

Instructions

Prep the Ingredients

  • Peel and clean the shrimp.
  • Cut the pineapple into bite size pieces.
  • Mince the rosemary; an easy way to do this is to put the herb in a cup and cut it with scissors until it is the desirable size.

Cook

  • Put a medium saucepan filled with water on medium-high heat and add the shrimp to partially cook it; if the shrimp is frozen this is an easy way to defrost it.
  • While that is cooking, heat the oil in a large pan.
  • Once the water reaches a boil, drain the shrimp.
  • When the oil in the frying pan is hot, put the shrimp in to finish cooking, 1 minute.
  • Next, stir in the pineapple and let that cook for 1 minute
  • After that, add the rosemary, mix it all together and let the shrimp soak up the pineapple juice.
  • Finally, take the pan off the heat and let it cool down a little bit.
  • Serve right away!
  • Optional: Plate it on top of rice. Enjoy! :)
