pineapple bits and shrimp kabobs on the barbeque grill

Makes 4 Servings

Ingredients

1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha chili sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 ¼ pounds shelled and deveined large (18-21) shrimp
1 large green bell pepper, cut in 1-inch squares, 36 pieces
36 fresh pineapple cubes
12 (10-inch) bamboo skewers

Directions

Heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high for direct grilling. In a small pot, combine the pineapple and lime juices, soy sauce, stevia, chile sauce, and ginger. Cook over medium-high heat and reduced to 1/2 cup, 5-6 minutes. Pour the sauce into a small serving bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, to assemble the skewers, bend a shrimp into a “C” and push it to the bottom of a skewer. Add a pepper square, then a pineapple chunk, threading it through the 3/4-inch side. To fill the skewer, repeat 2 more times. Make 11 more skewers. Coat the skewers with cooking spray.

Brush the grill with oil. Arrange the skewers on the grill, perpendicular to the grate. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn and cook 2 minutes more. Keep turning the skewers every minute to avoid charring, 7-8 minutes in total, or until the shrimp are white in the center.

Place the kebabs on a serving platter and brush on both sides with some of the sauce. Serve immediately, passing the remaining sauce in a small pitcher.

Ingredients

12 ounces skinless boneless chicken cutlets, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon rice wine or dry Sherry
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup fresh asparagus in 1-inch pieces, about 6 ounces before trimming

Sauce
1/2 cup fat-free reduced sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon rice wine or dry Sherry
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

Place the chicken in a mixing bowl. Add the sesame oil, wine, soy sauce, salt and pepper and mix to coat the chicken. Set the chicken aside to marinate while measuring and combining the sauce ingredients.

In a small bowl, combine the broth, lemon zest and juice, wine, soy sauce, garlic, Stevia In The Raw®, pepper flakes, and sesame oil. Set the sauce aside.

In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with 2 teaspoons cold water, leaving the spoon in the bowl, and set aside.

Coat the bottom of a wok heavily with cooking spray, including 5 inches up the sides. Set the wok over the highest heat possible. When a drop of water flicked into the wok dances, add asparagus and stir-fry until it is bright green, 1 minute. Turn the asparagus out onto a plate.

Add the marinated chicken and stir-fry until it is lightly browned but still pink in the center, 3 minutes. Pour in the sauce. Keeping the chicken moving with the wok paddle, cook for 3 minutes, or until the pieces are white in the center. Stir the cornstarch mixture and add it to the work. Return the asparagus to the wok, and stir-fry until the sauce thickens enough to coat the chicken and asparagus, 1 minute.

Immediately divide the stir-fry among 4 plates and serve.
