  1. In a large skillet or in a wok, heat your oil to medium heat, and then add the carrot, tossing very frequently.
  2. Allow the carrot to cook for about 4 minutes.
  3. Then add your onion, and cook for another 4 minutes or so, and then add your garlic, cooking for another minute or so.
  4. In a liquid measuring cup, add your soy sauce, brown sugar, juice, vinegar and cayenne.
  5. Add your liquid mixture to the skillet and bring to a heavy simmer.
  6. Add your shrimp, and cook until your shrimp is done (pink on both sides) approximately 3-4 minutes.
  7. Don't overcook your shrimp.
  8. At this time, you can throw in your pineapple chunks if you wish to use them.
  9. While your shrimp is cooking, mix your cornstarch with approximately 4-5 tablespoons of water (just enough to make it a liquid mixture-you may need a little more or a little less because I never measure the amount of water I use).
  10. Add the cornstarch mixture to your pan, and sir constantly until thick- this will not take very long at all.
  11. You may turn your heat down to medium-low.
  12. Serve with rice.
  13. ENJOY!
