How to Make Shrimp & Pineapple kebabs w/brown sugar & lime
- The * are because IF I don't have unsalted butter then I use salted butter and omit the added 1/4 tsp sea salt in the recipe.
- Combine brown sugar, lime juice, butter, ginger,jalapeno and salt(if using) in a small but heavy saucepan. Bring to boil then turn it down and simmer for about 5 minutes or until syrupy.
- Toss shrimp and pineapple in peanut oil. Thread 4-5 shrimp on each skewer with pineapple chunks in between them.
- Heat your grill. Lightly oil grill and then grill the skewers about 2 minutes on each side brushing with the glaze as they cook.
