Description

A simple tasty recipe for Grilled  Shrimp Skewers fresh pineapple in a flavorful, chipotle marinade bursting with South American flavors. Serve with Jicama Slaw!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound large raw, peeled and deveined shrimp ( 2115 or 1620 size)
  • 1 pound pineapple chunks- cut to same thickness as shrimp ( about ¾ inch thick)

Marinade:


Instructions

  1. Soak skewers if using wood.
  2. Place shrimp in a bowl or ziplock bag.
  3. Blend marinade ingredients together in a blender until smooth.
  4. Pour marinade over shrimp and marinate 20-30 minutes. Prep pineapple.
  5. Pre-heat grill to medium.
  6. Drain the marinade from the bag or bowl into a small saucepan.
  7. Skewer shrimp and pineapple, alternating on skewers ( Skewer pineapple the flat way so shrimp and pineapple are about the same wide, and both lay flat on the grill. That way you will have good grill marks on both. This should make 10-12 x 10-inch skewers.
  8. Give the marinade a quick simmer, until it thickens and darkens a bit. Turn heat off.
  9. Grease the grill well.
  10. Lay the skewers down, grilling each side about 3 minutes, or until good grill marks develop, and shrimp is cooked, but not overcooked.
  11. Place on a serving platter. Drizzle with reduced marinade or lime.
  12. Serve immediately.

  1. Made this a few weeks ago and loved it. How do you think it would be with chicken in place of the shrimp? Think I could imagine the flavors, but would love your blessing on the change. Love your Grilled Chicken Kabobs too.

  2. Delicious! Made this last night and will make again and again. Doubled the marinade because we just made a lime-cilantro jasmine rice and wanted extra to put on the rice but next time will plan ahead more and make your Jicama Slaw which sounds heavenly. Also added some red pepper to the marinade and skewers and would do that again. Flavors in the marinade were so enjoyable. Thank you for all your inspiration and wonderful meals.

  3. Delicious – one of the best marinades I’ve had in a long time! Next time I’d going to make double and put it on the pineapples too!

  4. I hate being negative on this because I absolutely have made so many of your recipes and love them.I marinated the shrimp overnight as the recipe mentioned, and the shrimp’s texture was horrible,,,mushyish.

    1. Oh shoot Barbara- I’m sorry and very glad you told me. Do you think it was because it was marinated overnight? I bet that was it- and adjusted the recipe. I made this recipe so long ago, I can’t remember if I marinated it overnight or not…sorry about that! Will have to do some testing here.

  5. Okay, this recipe is pretty much PERFECT. Served it alongside the grilled jamaican jerk chicken and peach skewers for a friend’s going-away party last summer. Lots of flavor without much effort. Love this.

  6. I just love grilling season so darn much. These skewers look SO tasty and so flavorful- cannot wait to try them out!
