  • 2 lbs large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 orange bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 8 oz sugar snap peas
  • 3/4 cup sweet yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple cut into bite sized pieces
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Sesame Seeds optional garnish

For the Sauce

  • 1/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp garlic minced
  • 2 tsp ginger minced
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp Cornstarch combined


  • First, make the sauce. Add the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, honey, and sesame oil into a small pot over medium high heat.
  • Stir until the sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes, then turn up the heat and bring to a boil.
  • Mix the cornstarch with 2 Tablespoons of cold water in a separate bowl until dissolved. Add the cornstarch into the sauce mixture and boil for 1-2 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Set sauce aside.
  • In your wok, or large saucepan heat 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil over medium high heat.
  • Add in the shrimp and generously season with salt and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes until just cooked. Set the shrimp aside.
  • Heat another teaspoon of vegetable oil in your pan and add in the bell pepper, onion, snap peas, and pineapple and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes until everything has started to soften.
  • Then, add the shrimp back into the pan and add the sauce over the top. Cook for 1-3 minutes over medium high heat until everything is warmed through and sauced.
  • Finally make a bowl for yourself, garnish with sesame seeds, and enjoy!
