These shrimp and pineapple kebabs with brown sugar and lime glaze are a big hit with everyone that I have served them to. We have had "kebab parties" a few times this summer where I have made all 3 of the kebab recipes I have posted and everyone loved them. I served them with a huge platter of rice,corn on the cob and some grilled yellow squash and zucchini...seemed so fancy and took so little time and what a nice change from the standard hamburger,hot dog and chicken cookout. This picture and recipe is from the Relish magazine...hope you like it as much as we do.

How to Make Shrimp & Pineapple kebabs w/brown sugar & lime

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Toss shrimp and pineapple in peanut oil. Thread 4-5 shrimp on each skewer with pineapple chunks in between them.
  4. Heat your grill. Lightly oil grill and then grill the skewers about 2 minutes on each side brushing with the glaze as they cook.
