Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh garlic, grated
  • 1 Teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 Teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 Cup fresh pineapple, diced
  • 1/2 Pound medium raw shrimp, cleaned
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs, leaves only
  • Couscous, for serving

Directions

Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat, add the garlic and ginger and cook until soft and fragrant, then add the pepper flakes and salt and sauté for 1 more minute. Turn the heat to medium-high and add the pineapple, cook for 10 minutes, until the pineapple starts to break down. Add the shrimp and sauté until they're pink and just cooked through, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and toss with lemon juice. Sprinkle the thyme leaves over each portion and serve immediately over couscous.

Sautéed Shrimp Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
