Are you stuck in a cooking rut? So often, we get stuck making the same recipes, or even the same kinds of meals. Last weekend, we whipped up these Sweet and Sour Shrimp Pockets for a fun meal. Now of course, you can serve this meal without the pockets, maybe over a bed of rice, but I think jazzing up your meal with something different is always fun.

I remember a time when shrimp was only available to those that could afford it, however now it is so plentiful in the store that many people dine on it regularly. We bought a whole bag of shrimp at Walmart for $4.88. And especially during Lent, many are looking for a new recipe to enjoy.

We love anything grilled and while the Winter months tend to limit our opportunities, any chance we get to eat from the grill is a delight. I had already purchased the cooked shrimp for this recipe but next time we’ll definitely be grilling the shrimp along with the fresh pineapple.

With simple ingredients that you have in your pantry, including a packet of Sun-Bird Sweet and Sour Seasoning, this meal was ready in a flash! Don’t limit yourself to just Shrimp, you could also use chicken or pork with this recipe.
