Add the barbecue sauce, stir, and increase the heat to high. When it starts to simmer, return the shrimp to the pan, toss everything together to coat well, and cook for about a minute as the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat and add the green onions. Serve by itself or over rice. Enjoy!
Even if you aren't partial to a spicy barbecue sauce most of the time, you'll want a spicy sauce to balance the sweet pineapple in this dish. You can make your own sauce in just a few minutes or use your favorite spicy store-bought sauce. I promise that the end result will not be too spicy. I've also used our spiciest barbecue sauce and there was barely a hint of heat to the dish when it was ready to eat.
To make this a truly fast dinner recipe, I like to buy the shrimp peeled and deveined. If you're working with shrimp in the shell, it will take a few extra minutes to prep it prior to starting the recipe.
