Easy Shrimp Stir-Fry with Green Pepper, Pineapple & Bacon
Combine chili sauce, rice wine (or sherry), tamari, water and cornstarch in a small bowl. Set next to the stove.Advertisement
Cook bacon in a large flat-bottom wok or large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a plate.
Add bell pepper to the drippings in the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add shrimp, scallions, ginger and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, until the shrimp are cooked through, about 2 minutes. Stir the reserved sauce and add to the pan along with pineapple and the bacon. Cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute more.
Tip: Shaoxing rice wine is a nutty Chinese spirit made from glutinous rice that adds complex flavor to simple stir-fries and braised meat. Look for it in Asian food markets or in the international aisle of large grocery stores.
