Shrimp In Fruity Sauce

Most of us should be familiar with sweet and sour chicken or pork dish. Carlos and I are not a fan of pork so I decided to adapt this dish to shrimp. This is a quick and easy stir-fry dish that can be done in minutes.

Ingredient :

1/2 pound of shrimp - peel and deveined
1/2 cucumber - cut in chunks
1 cup of pineapple - cut in chunks
6 strawberry - cut in half
1/2 a mango - cut in chunks
1 medium size onion - quartered
2 cloves of garlic - chopped
1 tsp of freshly grated ginger

Sauce :

3/4 cup of orange juice
3 tbsp of lemon juice - optional
2 tbsp of plump sauce
3 tbsp of tomato ketchup
1 tsp of corn starch
1 tsp of sugar - optional
salt and pepper to taste

1) Mixed all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Heat up a pan with a little bit of oil. Add in chopped garlic, onions, ginger and stir fry till lightly brown.
2) Add in shrimps and stir fry for a few second until it changes color. Then add in all the cut fruits and cucumber. Stir for a few second and add in the sauce.
3) Stir and bring to boil and check seasoning.
4) Serve with warm rice.

What a fruity dish! Very brave to add strawberry in your sweet and sour stir-fry. Looks divine!

What a lovely twist to the usual sweet and sour fare. I love the addition of strawberry and mango. Will try it out.

PS: I tried your Mango Shrimp Wanton and it turned out great! Thanks.

Rita, thanks and I hope David like this dish too :)

Cat, I too like pineapple and anything sweet and sour :)

Kath, it is good :)

Tigerfish, can used 'sotong' too :)

LCOM, I used strawberry because the one I just bought doesn't taste good either so have to think of a way to finish it all up :)

Rita, I thought of frying it but I want this dish to be healthier so decided not to :)

Pinky, when you cook this make sure your mango is not too ripe. Glad you like the wanton.

Nonya, I always try to put some color into a dish :)
