"These savory-sweet shrimp skewers are easy to make and cook in just a few minutes. They are perfect for summer weeknights or weekend dinner parties. Prep the sauce ahead of time for an even faster dinner. I prefer to use jumbo shrimp (21-25 per pound), however use what you have on hand."

  1. Combine water, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, garlic, and ginger in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until sauce has reduced and thickened slightly, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate. Thread shrimp and pineapple alternately onto skewers and place on a platter.
  3. Arrange skewers on the hot grate. Grill 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. Turn grill to low heat and brush sauce on both sides of skewers. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with cilantro and sesame seeds.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Try to cut the pineapple chunks approximately the same size as the shrimp for even grilling.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.

Don't know if I did something wrong but after cooking, it tasted like the shrimp had a pasty texture to them. Flavor was good and the grilled pineapple was excellent.

My husband loved it. Will be making again and again.

Made it just like the recipe said. It was good and I’m not a shrimp fan but my family is. Would make again

This was fabulous! Made lime cilantro rice to go with it.

I had to omit the ginger and garlic because my husband is on warfarin and I used pineapple juice instead of water. Delicious.

This was really delicious although we had to broil rather than grill. Our grill is covered in snow.

Made this twice now. Family loves it. Served over coconut jasmine rice. At minimum double the sauce. I’m going to quadruple it next time.

Came out very well, no leftovers. I served with rice. My jumbo shrimp cooked well, but my sauce was a bit thicker than I expected. next time I'll double the sauce.

Don't know if I did something wrong but after cooking, it tasted like the shrimp had a pasty texture to them. Flavor was good and the grilled pineapple was excellent.
