Description

This recipe is so easy, and it’s one of those things that’s not dependent on precise quantities and measurements, or even ingredients. You just throw some store bought teriyaki sauce into a dish, then start adding whatever you’d like to add and make it extra special … and something all your own.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (to 2 Pounds) Peeled, De-veined Jumbo Shrimp
  • 1 can (about 20 Oz.) Pineapple Chunks (or 1 Whole Fresh Pineapple)
  • _____
  • MARINADE:
  • ½ cups (to 1 Cup) Teriyaki Sauce
  • 2 whole (to 3 Whole) Green Onions, Sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons Garlic, Chopped, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon (to 2 Tablespoons) Sugar (optional)
  • Pineapple Juice (reserved From Can If Using Canned Pineapple)
  • 1 dash Lemon Juice
  • 1 dash Kosher Salt
  • _____
  • Optional Ingredients
  • Lime Zest
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • Minced Fresh Ginger
  • Jalapenos Seeded And Chopped

Preparation

In a bowl combine teriyaki sauce, green onions, garlic, sugar, pineapple juice, lemon juice and salt (and any other of the optional ingredients of your choosing, to taste). Mix these together well and set aside.

Wash, then peel and de-vein the shrimp (unless they’ve already come that way). Stir peeled/de-veined jumbo shrimp into the marinade and marinate at least a couple of hours.

Skewer pineapple chunks with the shrimp and grill until done, about 1 to 2 minutes per side on a very hot grill. Flip again and cook until brown to just slightly blackened. Serve to a hungry crowd. Get ready to be kissed because they will love you for the shrimp, if for nothing else.

Enjoy!

Included this in the Valentine’s Day dinner for hubby tonight, and it was fabulous! TOOOO cold to grill here in Ohio, so I did ‘em on the George Foreman and they were fantastic!

I’m with Natalie…grilled pineapple is delicious! I added the lime zest and chopped jalapeno to the marinade. It added a wonderful zing to the dish. I served it with asparagus and wild rice, very good dinner!

I don’t know how I have never had grilled pineapple before, but it was sooo good! I only marinated the shrimp for 2 hours, but it needs longer than that.
