Prep veggies

*Cut pineapple in half lengthwise and slice into ½-inch pieces. *Peel shallot and thinly slice. *Peel garlic and mince. *Deseed pepper and thinly slice lengthwise into ¼-inch slivers. *Thinly slice jalapeno into rounds. *Pick leaves off stems of Thai basil.


Cook stir-fry

Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a sauté pan on medium-high until shimmering. Add shallot and sauté until just soft, about 1 minute. Toss in garlic, bell pepper and jalapeno — adding only half if you prefer less spice — and stir to combine. Sauté until peppers start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add pineapple and shrimp and cook until shrimp starts to turn pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Add stir-fry sauce and samabl chili (if you want more of a kick) and stir to coat all the veggies. Cook until sauce is slightly reduced, another 2 minutes.


Garnish, plate

Take stir-fry off heat. Toss in cashews and basil and season to taste with salt. Divide shrimp and veggies evenly between two plates and serve.
