Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1 pound uncooked jumbo shrimp

  • ½ of a fresh pineapple

  • 6 tablespoon orange marmalade

  • ½ cup water

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 8.8 ounce pouch cooked long grain rice

  • ¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro


  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.


Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes before threading with food to prevent them from burning on the grill, or use metal skewers.
