Pineapples are great! They happen to be one of my favorite fruits. They are super versatile and can add great flavor to any recipe!
Pineapples contain bromelain, an enzyme that may help arthritis pain by easing inflammation. They are also a good source of vitamin C, which helps your immune system.
With Memorial Day coming up next week, we thought we would share a great recipe to add to your party menu! Grilled pineapples are delicious and a crowd pleaser 😋
Hawaiian Grilled Pineapple Shrimp Kabobs
Makes 4 servings
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh (or bottled) minced ginger
1 Tbsp cider or rice vinegar
1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp five-spice powder (optional)
1 tsp dark sesame oil
1 tsp honey
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 pound large shrimp, peeled (or top sirloin beef)
2 large sweet red peppers, cut into bite-sized pieces
12 pearl onions, fresh (or frozen) and peeled
1 8-ounce package whole mushrooms, cleaned
2 cups fresh pineapple chunks (or canned in fruit juice, no sugar added)
Canola cooking spray
1. Combine first 8 ingredients in zip-top plastic bag, then add shrimp. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.
2. Remove shrimp from marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and set aside for basting.
3. Preheat grill to medium high. Spray with cooking spray. Thread vegetables, pineapple, and shrimp onto metal skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water 30 minutes to prevent burning on the grill.)
