Grilled shrimp and pineapple skewers
Servings: 5-6 Skewers


  • 1lb Colossal Shrimp, tails left on
  • 1lb Pineapple Chunks, or 1/2 Pineapple cut into 1” chunks
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Lime, zest and juice
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tsp Grated Ginger
  • 1/2 Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 Tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/4 Tsp Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Soak wooden skewers (if using) in water for at least 20 minutes to prevent burning.
  2. In a large bowl, mix honey, soy sauce, olive oil, lime juice, lime zest, minced garlic, grated ginger, smoked paprika, ground cumin, and cayenne pepper. Reserve 4 Tbsp of the marinade separately for brushing skewers before grilling.
  3. Coat shrimp in marinade and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Preheat grill to medium-high (500°F / 260°C).
  4. Thread pineapple and shrimp onto skewers, alternating, with 3 pieces of each per skewer. Brush with reserved marinade. Tip: Skewer shrimp onto a kabob in two places. First, hold the shrimp firmly and slide the skewer through the tail end, near where the shell meets the flesh. Then, gently thread the shrimp onto the skewer again near the head, ensuring it stays securely in place.
  5. Grill skewers for about 2 minutes on each side until shrimp are opaque.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
