Sweet and Sour Shrimp

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by aspiring gourmet1

Delicious low-fat melding of sweet, sour and spicy flavors. Try it over couscous instead of rice. Try using 1/2 pound cooked chicken in place of the shrimp for a tasty alternative.

I cut out the cayenne as I was serving this to my kids as well, but it was still very tasty! Nice mix of flavors! The leftovers weren't nearly as good though, so I recommend eating it all at once:-) I am looking forward to trying it with chicken as well!
