  • 1 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined, tail on or off , 16 to 20 per pound
  • 8 oz, fresh pineapple chunks, 1" squares , 1/4 whole pineapple



  • Whisk ingredients in a bowl.


  • Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes up to 2 hours, (while the shrimp is in the marinade.)
  • Place the shrimp in a small bowl or a ziplock plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • Take the shrimp out of the refrigerator and start placing the shrimp and pineapple onto the skewers. Alternate shrimp and pineapple. You should be able to get 3 or 4 of each on the skewer. Reserve some of the marinade and brush or pour it onto to finished skewers to coat the pineapple.
  • Place the skewers on a hot grill for 2 to 3 minutes, then turn to grill the second side. The shrimp should be cooked through after 5 or 6 minutes.
