Combining some recent sales on pineapple and shrimp with our desire to eat more seafood, I thought I'd make some pineapple shrimp kabobs. As with most dishes, I opted for quick and easy. You could go even easier just cooking up the shrimp in a pan, but eating these pineapple shrimp off a skewer is just more fun! I opted to make these pineapple shrimp skewers in a pan (grills banned at the apartment) :(, but don't let me stop you from grilling your skewers!
Yield: 2 servings
|1/2 tablespoon||brown sugar|
|1/2 teaspoon||chili powder|
|1/2 teaspoon||garlic, minced|
|1 tablespoon||lime juice|
|8 ounces||about 16||pineapple chunks|
|1 pound||about 16||shrimp|
- Gather all materials.
- Combine all materials except pineapple, marinating if desired. (I'd recommend marinating if grilling, but if cooking in a pan, it's not as essential.)
- Skewer the shrimp with a piece of pineapple in between.
- Cook about 2-3 minutes on each side, until the shrimp turn opaque. If you still have a lot of liquid left, you can reduce it and use it as a sauce.
