Tropical Passion Sweet & Sour Shrimp

This is perfect for a dinner party or for a romantic meal. I saw Bob Bowersox demonstrate his unique version of Sweet & Sour Shrimp on QVC and thought it looked so delicious. I copied down the recipe, altered it to suit my tastes, and here is my version. Please - only use fresh cut fruit in this - not canned or it will not taste the same. This is nothing like Chinese style sweet and sour shrimp, but rather Hawaiian inspired. It has a fresh fruity taste, with a sour tang from the vinegar. I have only made this with shrimp so far, but I see no reason why you could not subsitute chunks of chicken or pork in this, and just stir fry it first until cooked through.
