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!!
