Pineapple Shrimp Boat

Last night I made this for dinner and John and I really enjoyed it. I was going to put it up on the blog, but my camera decided to be difficult and I couldn't get the picture uploaded until today. This had a nice, refreshing and light flavor and was fairly easy to make.

1 pineapple
3/4 brown rice
1/2 tsp oil
3/4 lb shrimp,deveined and peeled
3/4 cup fresh pineapple,chopped
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 bell pepper, chopped
1/2 onion chopped
1-2 jalapenos, chopped
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp fish sauce
Cilantro, for garnish

Cook brown rice and set aside. Hollow out pineapple halves and save the pineapple for cutting up for the recipe. (If you need to, you can cut a small slice out of the bottom flesh of the pineapple, without going all the way through to the inside, so it will lay flat.)
Heat the oil in a skillet. Cook the shrimp for just a minute or two until it's almost cooked through, but not completely. Set the shrimp aside. Into the same pan, add the green onions, garlic, bell pepper, onion and jalapenos. Saute for just a couple minutes, then add the shrimp, brown rice and the pineapple. Stir and add soy sauce and fish sauce. Stir again. Cook for 30 seconds to a minute more until shrimp is done. Serve in pineapple half and garnish with cilantro.
