Updated April 6, 2009

Ingredients

Pineapple-Lime Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons reserved pineapple juice from can of pineapple
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Kabobs

  • 3/4 lb uncooked deveined peeled large shrimp, thawed if frozen
  • 1 can (8 oz) pineapple chunks in juice, drained, 2 tablespoons juice reserved for marinade
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into 12 pieces
  • 4 medium green onions, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

Steps

  • 1
    In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix marinade ingredients. Add shrimp, pineapple, bell pepper and onions; stir to coat. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate 15 to 30 minutes, turning once or twice.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Carefully brush vegetable oil on grill rack. On each of 4 (12- to 14-inch) metal skewers, thread shrimp, pineapple, bell pepper and onions alternately, leaving small space between each piece. Reserve marinade.
  • 3
    Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 to 7 minutes, turning and brushing with marinade once, until shrimp are pink and vegetables are tender. Discard any remaining marinade.

  • Marinating for a little longer will intensify the flavor slightly, but don't leave it for more than 2 hours. The marinade will start to break down the tissues in the shrimp, and the bell pepper will not be as pretty.
  • This marinade is also delicious on chicken breasts. Marinate as directed, then grill until the juice of the chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F).
