Sometimes, I just don’t feel like an elaborate meal. Thankfully, I have a secret weapon. Costco. A few days ago I picked up a container of cilantro lime shrimp from there, not really sure what I was going to do with it, but certain it would become the base of a simple yet delicious meal. I love shrimp, but do NOT love deveining it, taking off the hard tail part etc. Pre-done? Fabulous! Tonight, I threw it in a pan, added some pineapple and a chopped red bell pepper. Spooned it over rice and voila! Easy, fridge to table in 20 minutes – and only that long because I cook rice like they did in the stone ages…in a pot.

Dump shrimp, bell pepper and pineapple chunks into a hot non-stick skillet. Stir fry, adding a little reserved pineapple juice to create an island cilantro lime sauce. Heat thru and serve over rice.
