5. Sweet-and-Sour Shrimp in Pineapple Shells
Here's How to Make It in 20 Minutes
Step 1: cook the rice

Curried Rice

1 1/4 cups long-grain white rice
1 to 2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Into a large saucepan, pour 2 1/2 cups water; salt the water, and cover the pot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add the 1 1/4 cups rice, 1 to 2 tablespoons butter, 2 teaspoons curry powder, and 1 teaspoon cumin. Return the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat and cook, covered, over low heat 12 to 15 minutes, or until the rice is tender and all the water has been absorbed. Keep warm until ready to serve.

Step 2: make the shrimp

Sweet and Sour Shrimp in Pineapple Shells

2 small (1 1/2 to 2 pounds) fresh ripe pineapples, halved lengthwise through frond or 1 large (3 1/2 to 4 pounds) pineapple, quartered through frond
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 pounds jumbo shrimp, shelled, deveined, and patted dry
1 cup sliced green pepper (from the salad bar)
1/2 cup chopped green onions (from the salad bar)
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. With a sharp knife, trim out the pineapple pieces, leaving 1/2-inch-thick shells. Place the pineapple shells with fronds still attached on a rimmed baking sheet and warm in the oven until ready to serve.
Remove and discard the cores from the pieces of pineapple. Cut the cored pineapple pieces into 3/4-inch pieces. Reserve 3 cups pieces; wrap and refrigerate any extra pieces for another use. Coarsely chop the 1 cup green pepper slices.
In a large skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat until hot. Add the 1 1/2 pounds shrimp, the coarsely chopped green pepper, and 1/2 cup green onions; cook, stirring, 4 to 5 minutes, or until the shrimp are cooked through. Stir in the reserved 3 cups pineapple and combine well.
In a measuring cup, combine the 1/2 cup apricot preserves, 1 tablespoon cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon ground ginger. Pour the sauce mixture over the shrimp mixture in the skillet and cook, stirring, until the sauce bubbles. Remove the pan from the heat.

Step 3: arrange the salad

Sugar Snap Pea Salad

1 1/2 cups (about 6 ounces) sugar snap peas
1 bag (5 ounces) Asian-style salad greens
Soy vinaigrette, store bought or homemade
Rinse the 1 1/2 cups sugar snap peas and string them. Pat the peas dry.
Divide the salad greens among 4 chilled salad plates. Top with the sugar snap peas. Place the salads and dressing on the table.
Step 4: serve

Transfer the pineapple shells to 4 dinner plates, draining any juice that has collected into the sauce. Stir the shrimp mixture and, with a slotted spoon, divide among the 4 shells. Transfer any sauce remaining in the skillet to a small bowl. Place the plates and sauce on the table.
Fluff the curried rice with a fork, then transfer it to a serving bowl and serve.
