Most of us have ordered sweet and sour shrimp at Chinese restaurants. The shrimp is battered, deep fried, and drowned in a bright colored sweet and sour sauce. This recipe is a much lighter version of that with homemade sauce, sautéed shrimp, and crisp vegetables.
¼ cup honey
2 tablespoons pineapple juice (from canned pineapple)
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated ginger root
1 teaspoon Sriracha

1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 small onion, diced into ½ inch pieces
1 red bell pepper, cut into ½ inch pieces
