Ingredients



  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice (4.625 mg)
  • 1 tablespoon water (trace)
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar (.3 mg)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil (trace)
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar or Splenda (.042 mg)
  • 12 medium shrimp shelled (106.6 mg)
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil (trace)
  • 7 unsalted walnuts, quartered (.284 mg)
  • 20 snow peas, trimmed (2.72 mg)
  • ½ cup crushed pineapple (canned) (1.23 mg)

    Prepare the shrimp ahead of time and store in refrigerator, covered.

    Steam cook the rice in a steamer.

    When ready to prepare the entrée, heat extra virgin olive oil over moderately high heat in a non-stick skillet until it's hot (not smoking).

    Sauté the snow peas for 45 seconds stirring constantly, or until they are tender but crisp.

    Transfer the snow peas to a bowl. In the same non-stick skillet sauté the shrimp for 1 minute on each side, then add the pineapple and simmer the shrimp, covered, for 1 minute, or until they are cooked through.

    Add the shrimp mixture to the snow pea mixture. Add in the rice and toss with sesame oil, sugar, and white wine vinegar.

    Serve with boiled in unsalted water pasta and cherry tomatoes.
