Makes: 4 servings
Start to Finish 30 mins
Grilled Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers
Ingredients
  • 1  pound  uncooked jumbo shrimp
  • 1/2  of a fresh pineapple
  • 6  tablespoons  orange marmalade
  • 1/2  cup  water
  • 1  tablespoon  soy sauce
  • 1 8.8 ounce pouch  cooked long grain rice
  • 1/4  cup  snipped fresh cilantro
Directions

1. Peel and devein shrimp; thread onto four skewers*. Cut pineapple crosswise into four slices; core, if desired, and cut each slice into quarters to make 16 small wedges. Thread onto four additional skewers. In a small saucepan combine 4 tablespoons of the marmalade, the water, and soy sauce. Brush some of the marmalade-soy sauce mixture onto shrimp and pineapple.

2. Place skewers on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are opaque and pineapple is heated through. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.

3. Return remaining marmalade-soy sauce mixture to saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Heat rice according to package directions. Transfer rice to a serving bowl; stir in remaining 2 tablespoons marmalade and the cilantro.

4. Serve skewers with rice and the marmalade-soy sauce mixture.

From the Test Kitchen*Tip:
  • Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before threading with food to prevent them from burning on the grill, or use metal skewers.
