Polynesian Shrimp with Pineapple

A wonderful weeknight dinner - quick and easy to prepare, delicious and healthy! This is a take off on Sweet and Sour Shrimp, but there is no batter to add unwanted calories. Fresh pineapple makes it extra special, but pineapple canned in its own juice also works well. Serve over steamed rice.
