-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
3 tablespoons frozen pineapple-juice concentrate
1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, plus more to taste
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 fresh pineapple or 20-ounce can unsweetened pineapple chunks, drained
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

1 bunch scallions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch lengths

In a small bowl, whisk teriyaki sauce, pineapple-juice concentrate, vinegar, hot sauce and cornstarch. Set aside.

If using fresh pineapple, with a large knife, peel pineapple half. Cut lengthwise into 4 wedges and crosswise into 3/8-inch-thick slices.

In a wok or large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over high heat until very hot. Add giner and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and stir-fry until pink, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl.

Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil until very hot. Add pineapple and scallions and cook, stirring occasionally, until pineapple is brown in spots, about 4 minutes. Add reserved sauce mixture and shrimp and heat through, about 1 minute. Adjust seasoning with salt. Serve immediately.
