Easy Trader Joe’s pineapple shrimp stir fry! All you need is a handful of ingredients to make this tropical inspired meal.
This is one of my new favorite Trader Joe’s meals! If you are new to my blog – I create a variety of easy and healthy-ish recipes. But, a lot of them I like to make using all Trader Joe’s products. I find these recipes to be easiest for busy people! Their products are so good that all you need is a handful of them to create a delicious home-cooked meal. This one is SO easy!
What you need for this recipe:
Shrimp – I use the frozen red Argentine shrimp. They are my favorite frozen shrimp. They have a lobster taste to them, in my opinion.
Trader Joe’s Island soyaki sauce/marinade – I love this stuff!
Diced bell pepper
Sliced green onion
Cornstarch or arrowroot powder. Trader Joe’s doesn’t sell arrowroot powder. But, most other stores do. You can also buy it on amazon. Corn starch or arrowroot will work in this recipe, both will thicken the sauce and give it that sticky texture!
Other easy Trader Joe’s recipes:
I served my pineapple shrimp over leftover sticky rice from take-out! You could use white rice, brown rice, cauliflower rice, or quinoa. But, you’ll definitely want to serve it over something to make it a meal. Also, the rice is so good with the leftover sauce!
