Ingredients You’ll Need:
- Raw Shrimp
- Fresh Pineapple
- Bell Pepper – I recommend using red bell peppers as they are sweeter, but you could use yellow or orange as well.
- Teriyaki-style Sauce: Soy Sauce, Lime Juice, Honey, and Chili Garlic Sauce.
- Cooked Rice – for serving. You can even use instant rice to make dinner super easy.
How to Make Easy Pineapple Shrimp
- Cook the Rice. If you’re using instant or microwave, then you don’t need to start it as early.
- Preheat the Broiler and Mix the Sauce.
- Broil the Peppers and Pineapple. Toss the peppers and pineapple on a foil lined sheet pan with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
- Add Shrimp and Sauce and Broil Again. The shrimp only takes 2-3 minutes to cook. The shrimp should be just turning opaque while the peppers and pineapple will have some nice char.
What type of shrimp should be used?
I used one pound of frozen raw deveined shrimp that I thawed and cleaned. It was 16-20 count per lb. I recommend using shrimp that is at least this size or bigger. Using smaller shrimp will make it easier to accidentally overcook them under the broiler. I don’t recommend it.
Can I use canned pineapple instead of fresh?
I have only tested this recipe using fresh and I highly recommend using fresh. You can use canned if that’s all you have but know the texture will be slightly different. Canned pineapple is softer than fresh.
Storage and Reheating
Storage: Leftover shrimp can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about 4 days.
Reheating: Leftovers can be reheated in the microwave or, for best results, in the oven.
Recipe Notes and Tips:
- Keep watch on the broiler. Watch your sheet pan carefully during broiler. The shrimp and pineapple can quickly go from nicely charred to burnt.
- Shrimp cook quickly! Shrimp under the broiler only take a couple of minutes. They are done when they are pink and opaque. Avoid overcooking, as overcooked shrimp can be tough.
