Sweet and Sour Shrimp

Shrimp is one of our favorite seafood to eat and this sweet and sour shrimp is definitely on out top list of the shrimp recipe. Sweet and sour shrimp is very easy to make, the ingredients are very easy to source, quick to make, and to crown it all it is tasty.

The recipe calls for barbecue sauce, you can use  sauce or just get a brand you love from the store and use. Some people like to add brown sugar or honey, I didn’t use it because the pineapple I got was sweet enough and needed no more sugar or honey. If you’d like to add a bout a teaspoon of honey or brown sugar please feel free to add it.

There are so many shrimp recipes available on the blog please search for them if you’ll like to try out some of them. I’ll also link some below.
