  1. Combine the sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. Coat the shrimp very lightly with flour and shake off excess.
  3. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large wok, set over medium-high heat. Saute the shrimp in batches until golden brown on both sides, about 3 minutes.
  4. Remove the shrimp from the wok. Add the remaining oil and the peppers and onions and stir-fry for about 5 minutes. Add the pineapple chunks and sauce. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute.
  5. Add the shrimp, warm and serve.

We enjoyed this, though we found it to be a very mild sweet and sour sauce. I used apple cider vinegar and splenda, all green peppers, and yellow onions. My shrimp was pre-cooked so it ended up a little chewy but that was operator error. I liked the sauce on lots of veggies over brown rice for a very easy weeknight meal.

DH and I loved this dish! It is a notch above the normal sweet and sour recipe. I figured it to have 5 WW points. Added a touch of red peppers during step 5. I also doubled the sauce mixture to serve over rice. Overall a quick, easy and delicous dish that will be made again. Thanks TXOLDHAM for posting this recipe.
