Citrus Shrimp Skewers with Pineapple

27 Jul

This is delicious and easy, what’s not to love? My apologies for the low quality photos, I had to take them with the camera on my phone at the time.

Time: 20 minutes      Serves: 4


  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 2 tsp fresh garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp green onion, chopped
  • 1 lb large/jumbo shrimp, uncooked (thawed if frozen)
  • 1 lb fresh pineapple, cut into chunks

How to make it

  • Combine first 8 ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Put shrimp in a separate bowl and pour mixture over top until they are just immersed (about half of mixture). Cover bowl of shrimp as well as bowl with remaining liquid mixture and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Preheat grill to medium/medium-high heat. Remove both bowls from fridge.
  • Put chunks of pineapple on skewers. Place shrimp on skewers. Put skewers on grill, for about 4 minutes on each side. Baste with liquid mixture throughout cooking. Cook until shrimp turns bright pink. Cook pineapple until it becomes slightly charred. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
  • **Note: I served it with citrus fruits that I also grilled (lemons, limes, and oranges) as well as white rice tossed in Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki teriyaki sauce.
