Shrimp and Red Pepper Stir-Fry

This stir-fry is faster than delivery and a whole lot tastier, too.


  • 1 cup long-grain rice

  • 1 tbsp canola oil

  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 400-g pkg frozen raw medium shrimp, thawed and peeled

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 1/2 red sweet pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1 cup finely chopped pineapple, (about 140 g)

  • 1/4 cup red pepper jelly

  • 3 tbsp lemon juice

  • 4 tsp low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced


  • Cook rice in a large saucepan following package directions, but omitting salt, 15 to 20 min.

  • Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add oil, then onion. Cook until onion starts to brown, 3 to 5 min. Add shrimp and garlic. Stir-fry until shrimp turns pink, 3 to 4 min. Transfer shrimp to a plate.

  • Add bell pepper, pineapple, red pepper jelly, lemon juice and soy sauce. Cook until bell pepper is tender-crisp, 2 to 3 min more . Return shrimp to pan. Sprinkle with green onion. Serve over rice and drizzle with sauce.
