Method:

In a bowl mix the ingredients for the sauce;  Soy sauce, Ketjap manis, chicken stock, Shaoxing Wine, tomato paste,Sambal Oelek, hoisin sauce and honey or coconut sugar.

In a wok heat the oil and fry Garlic and ginger for a minutes or so on medium heat. Turn the heat to high before adding the shrimp. Fry for a minute,  add the pineapple and the sauce, lower the heat again to medium and let come to a simmer.

Dissolve the  cornstarch in cold water and add to the sauce.

Gently cook for about 3 minutes  until sauce has thickened and shrimp a cooked. If the sauce is too thick add a little more water, taste and adjust seasoning.

Serve immediately over some Jasmin rice or noodles. I serve this with cucumber sticks.
