10 servings (serving size: 1 skewer and about 1 tablespoon sauce)

The bright, tropical flavors of these skewers make them a welcome addition to a holiday party. Purchase the best fresh shrimp you can find, and ask the fishmonger to peel and devein them for you. You also could serve two skewers on a bed of rice as a light supper.

How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare dipping sauce, combine first 4 ingredients in a blender; process until smooth. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover and chill 30 minutes.

Step 2

To prepare skewers, combine pineapple juice, olive oil, rind, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon red pepper in a large bowl. Add shrimp; toss to coat. Let stand 10 minutes.

Step 3

Thread 2 shrimp and 2 pineapple cubes alternately onto each of 10 (6-inch) skewers. Brush skewers with pineapple juice mixture. Heat a heavy grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add skewers to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done. Serve with dipping sauce.

Loved it! Great summer meal - served with couscous - rice would work too. Made some skewers with tofu marinated in same sauce for a vegetarian guest and they turned out great too. Will definitely make again.
