Pineapple Garlic Sweet Chili Shrimp:
Shrimp is one of my favorite things to make and eat because it's so versatile! One of my favorite ways to have it is with a super flavorful sauce that has a lot of tangy, spicy, and sweet flavor.
I didn't purchase store-bought chili garlic sauce for this recipe, instead, I made my own from what I had on hand, and it turned out perfectly! The sauce is a super simple mixture of chili sauce (also known as Sriracha), along with some honey, soy sauce, garlic, and pineapple juice!
Those are ingredients I typically always have on hand. However, this recipe can be made with the same amount of sweet chili garlic sauce if that is what you already have at home.
For this shrimp recipe, you simply saute the shrimp with olive oil and the sauce right in one pan. This takes just about 3-5 minutes until the shrimp is opaque. After this, you add a cornstarch and cold water slurry to thicken up your sauce, and you're ready to eat!
