Why do take-out when you can whip up quick-grilled shrimp, pineapple, and peppers brushed with an easy prepared sauce.

Ingredients

1
cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
2
cups water
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
medium green bell peppers, cut into 16 (1 1/2-inch) pieces
12
or 16 shelled deveined uncooked large shrimp (about 1/2 lb.), tails removed
1
(8-oz.) can pineapple chunks in light syrup, drained
1
cup purchased sweet-and-sour sauce

Directions

  • 1 Cook rice in water with salt as directed on package.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat gas or charcoal grill. Thread bell pepper, shrimp and pineapple onto four 8 to 10-inch metal skewers.
  • 3 When grill is heated, place kabobs on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cover grill; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, brushing frequently with sweet-and-sour sauce.

Tips  

Shrimp are an excellent source of low-fat protein. While shrimp are higher in cholesterol than some seafood, when balanced with other foods that are low in cholesterol they can be part of a heart healthy eating plan.

If entertaining, use an Asian short-grain rice. Serve fortune cookies and green tea sorbet for desserts.
