Love the combo of pineapple and teriyaki sauce. I'd like the sauce to be a bit thicker so it sticks to the kebab better, but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing. Served mine with rice and a fresh salad for a MyPlate worthy meal.

Really good! All of my kids enjoyed making their own kabobs.

These are so simple and so yummy! I enjoyed mine with whole grain rice and the boyfriend chopped up his kabobs and tossed it with goat cheese and a bit of rice. Both ways were dy-no-mite!

Good recipe. Nice balance of sweet and sour. Very easy to make and served over rice.

I wasn't a fan of this's nothing fancy. Plus, I have a hard time cooking shrimp on the grill...the shrimp on the end burn and the ones in the middle are underdone.

Served with a green salad and grilled corn with lime butter (Cooking Light July 2002). very good, quick. I bought pineapple chunks from the salad bar in the market. Our shrimp may have been smaller, will cook them a few minutes less next time but they were delicious.

Quick easy meal, used pre-prepared shrimp to save time. My teriyaki sauce had seasme seeds in it already so I saved even more time.

Super Fantastic!! Will definitely make again. Aside from peeling the shrimp, which just takes forever so do it ahead of time if you can, this recipe is super easy and tastes great. I served with rice.
