Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat, add the garlic and ginger and cook until soft and fragrant, then add the pepper flakes and sauté for 1 more minute. Turn the heat to medium-high and add the pineapple, cook for 10 minutes, until the pineapple starts to break down. Add the shrimp and sauté until they’re pink and just cooked through, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and toss with lemon juice. Sprinkle the thyme leaves over each portion and serve immediately over couscous.
