I love this quick and easy recipe for Barbecue Shrimp with Pineapple BBQ Glaze. You can make this recipe in 30 minutes or less. The sweet pineapple glaze pushes this recipe over the top. I used fresh pineapple, barbecue sauce, shallots and a little fresh ginger to make the glaze. It is amazing!
I’m posting for Weekday Supper today and our theme this month is Summer Vacation Recipes. The last few vacations I’ve gone to we’ve rented a house and seafood is always at the top of our list to make. You can make the skewers and sauce ahead of time and pop them on the grill 10 minutes before you’re ready for dinner.
- 1 lb. shrimp
- 1 fresh pineapple or 1 20 oz. can pineapple chunks
- 1 red pepper
- 2 shallots
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 tablespoon chopped shallots
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- Chopped cilantro
- Soak the wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before using. Cut the fresh pineapple, red peppers and shallots into pieces that can be skewered,
- Alternate the shrimp, shallots, pineapple and red peppers onto the skewers. Lightly salt and pepper the skewers.
- Grill over medium high heat for about 10 minutes or until the shrimp is turning pink and done.
- In a blender combine all of the glaze ingredients. Mix together until it is a slightly chunky consistency. Heat in a saucepan for 5 minutes while the shrimp skewers are cooking. Brush the glaze on the skewers the last few minutes of cooking time. Serve remaining sauce on the side.
- Sprinkle with cilantro right before serving
