Sweet and Sour Shrimp

 Seafood, yet again!

I made this sweet and sour shrimp for dinner last week. Very quick and easy and healthy...the theme for most of my dishes. Check out the recipe below:

1lb De-veined Cooked Lg. Shrimp (Thawed or fresh)
3 Tbsp Sweet and Sour Sauce
1/2 cup Pineapple Cubes
I Small Head Broccoli
1lb bag of Frozen Vegetables
Dried Pepper Flakes
1/2 Tsp Salt

1Tbsp of Hoisin Sauce (optional)

Thaw frozen vegetables and add to pan on medium heat. Simmer until heated, and then add the shrimp, pineapple cubes, and fresh broccoli and cook for approximately 5 minutes. We are almost done :)...Add the sweet and sour sauce, and salt and pepper, and stir. Leave the pan covered for 2-3 minutes and then, dinner is ready, enjoy!

Varieties: You may add some al dente pasta to the shrimp and vegetables for a complete meal in a pan.
 I had this fiesta with some vegetable brown rice. (See the salmon and kale recipe)
