Sweet Heat Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers

Good morning!
While browsing the internet this morning for some new recipes I can try at home – I found this one that I know my husband will love, so I thought I’d share!

I found it from the Hungry Girl website.

Sweet Heat Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers

Hungry Girl's Sweet Heat Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers

Ingredients:
1/2 cup pineapple juice You don’t need added sugar
1 tbsp. Sriracha 
1 tsp. Chopped garlic
1 tsp. Chopped ginger
1 tsp. Honey
10 oz. (about 22) raw large shrimp, peeled, tails removed, deveined
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks 

Directions:
In a wide bowl, combine all ingredients except shrimp and pineapple. Mix until uniform.
Add shrimp, and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate to marinate for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, if using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.
Alternately thread shrimp and pineapple onto four skewers. Discard excess marinade.

Bring a grill sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Grill kebabs for 3 minutes with the grill cover down.
Flip kebabs. With the grill cover down, grill for 3 minutes, or until shrimp are cooked through and pineapple has lightly browned.

MAKES 2 SERVINGS!

The nutrition value of the skewers will be skewed as I ditched the pineapple juice.  However, here’s a GUIDELINE. Obviously the sugar content will be a little lower.
