Crank up the Bob Marley, fire up the grill and pop open a Red Stripe. These Jerk Shrimp Skewers will send you and your guests on a trip to Jamaica without the airline ticket. They can be served as a delicious hors d’oeuvre, but are equally good served atop the Calypso Chopped Salad recipe on this site.
Heat grill on high heat (or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat). Thread shrimp on skewers alternating with the pineapple chunks. Grill approximately 2 minutes per side, until shrimp is cooked through.
Makes 8-12 appetizer servings.
*Note: 1 1/2 tablespoons dry “Jerk” seasonings can be substituted for the herbs and spices. Check label to see what ingredients are included in the blend, then omit ingredients from the recipe accordingly.
