Chunks of sweet pineapple and a hint of Cajun give these easy Grilled Shrimp Kabobs a special zest, while red peppers add a splash of color.
Serve these kabobs, also known as brochettes, as an appetizer or main dish, and everyone is sure to beg for more!
You'll want to use fairly large shrimp or prawns for these delicious grilled kabobs. Look for "Colossal" or "Jumbo."
Marinade the shrimp, pineapple chunks, and red peppers for 1-4 hours before grilling. After just a few minutes on the grill, they're done!
Serves 8 for appetizers or 4 as a main course
1. Add all ingredients to a large glass or ceramic bowl. Gently stir to coat the shrimp, pineapple, and red peppers with the marinade. Refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.
2. Carefully thread the shrimp, pineapple chunks, and red pepper pieces onto bamboo skewers.
3. Cook on a hot outdoor or indoor grill for 2 or 3 minutes. Carefully flip the skewer over (I use tongs to do this) and cook on the other side for 2 - 3 minutes.
The exact grilling time depends on the size of the shrimp, as well as the temperature of your grill. As soon as the shrimp become opaque, remove them from the grill - they're done!
Serve immediately, and enjoy!
