Juicy pineapple shrimp skewers is a quick and healthy 30 minute meal that you can make on the grill, on the stove top, or in the oven! Gorgeous pink pineapple and tangy Hawaiian huli huli sauce make this dish extra special.
huli huli sauce (double the recipe for more sauce, if you like)
3Tbspfresh lime juice
2tsptoasted sesame oil
1tsprice wine vinegar
24medium-large shrimp, peeled
1/2pink pineapple, cut in 1 1/2 inch chunks
Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil gently for about 10 minutes, or until slightly reduced. Taste to adjust any of the ingredients. Note: if you've chosen to double the recipe, the boiling time will be longer.
Thread your skewers, alternating shrimp with pineapple chunks. I used 3 pieces of each.
how to cook on the grill
Get your grill nice and hot. If it's got temperature controls, crack it up to 450F. Grill the skewers directly on the grates, or on a grill pan or topper made for shrimp or kebabs. Give them 2-3 minutes per side, brushing with the marinade once or twice on both sides.
how to cook on the stove top
You'll want a griddle or large grill pan that can fit your skewers. Heat the pan over medium high to high heat until very hot. Brush the skewers lightly with oil and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side. Note: I don't recommend basting with marinade here because it will burn on your pan.
how to cook in the oven
Arrange your skewers on a foil lined baking sheet.Broil, about 4-5 inches from the heat source, until the shrimp is cooked through and starting to char. Brush with marinade if you like. Flip for another 2 minutes or until done. The exact time will depend on your broiler.
