Prawns With Pineapple In Sweet And Sour Sauce

A touch of exotic flavour in this light stir-fry recipe. By now you all know, I like to prepare different things and vary my diet. Well, this week I thought that a stir-fry would be really lovely to celebrate the warm weather. I could just imagine enjoying this dish with a nice glass of chilled white wine during a lovely sunset, sitting by the sea…Just perfect!!


Prawns with pineapple in sweet and sour sauce.


For 3 servings


Preparation: 20 minutes

250 g (8.8 oz) of cleaned and peeled prawns

2 spring onions,  sliced

1 big red bell pepper

350 g (12.3 oz) pineapple (cleaned)

4 radishes (without leaves)

3 tablespoons soy sauce (use a naturally fermented soy sauce, which meets gluten free standards)

2 tablespoons lime juice

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

ground black pepper to taste

fresh chillies to taste (optional)



1. Cut and clean the pineapple, removing all the hard parts (including the centre).


2. Wash and cut the bell pepper, then wash and slice the radishes.


3. In a frying pan (or a wok), sauté the garlic and the spring onions for a few minutes with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

4. Add the pineapple and bell pepper, cut into small cubes. Fry for 5 minutes, then add the prawns and stir.



5. Separately, mix the lime juice with the soy sauce, previously diluted with a little bit of water. Pour into the pan and stir well.


6. Stir fry over a medium heat for a few minutes, then turn off the heat. Add the crunchy radishes, season with black pepper and serve with a cup of steamed basmati rice. You can add some fresh chillies if you wish.
