1/2Tbspfresh minced cilantro
8ozcan of pineapple chunksdrain but save the juice
1 1/2Tbspsoy sauce
Zest from 1 lime
Juice from 1 lime
Cook rice in slightly salted water, according to the package instructions. Stir in some fresh cilantro and set aside. (Divide rice between two bowls when ready to serve.)
For the sauce: mix together pineapple juice, soy sauce, honey, lime juice, lime zest, chili powder, and cilantro. Set aside until ready to use.
Peel, de-vein, and rinse shrimp. Mix shrimp with lime juice, pineapple juice, chili powder, and salt in a bowl and let it sit while preheating a cooking pan.
Preheat a cooking pan with about a tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, sear shrimp until pink and opaque on both sides. Take out and set aside. (You can save the juice from marinating the shrimp and add it to the sauce.)
Add a little bit more oil to the pan and add drained pineapple chunks. Sear pineapple chunks until nicely browned. Lower the hear to medium.
Stir and add sauce to the pan. Stir and let it simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Quickly stir in shrimp and divide the shrimp, pineapple, and sauce mixture over the two rice bowls.
