Chipotle Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers

Michael Lee West of Rattlebridge Farm and host of Foodie Friday is having her Mystery Ingredient Club again. Can you guess what the secret ingredient is???  You'll have to stop by and check out the recipes!

This recipe is courtesy of Dash, a supplement to the newspaper and
The skewers are quick, and pack some heat and smoke from the chipolte, and sweetness from the caramelized pineapple.   I hope you give it a try this grilling season.

2 chipotle chiles (from 1 can chipotles in adobo sauce), plus 2 T. adobo sauce (I freeze the     remainder chipotles  on waxed paper and then stick in a freezer proof bag)
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 T.  vegetable oil
1 lemon
1 pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed
1 1/4 lb.  extra-large shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 scallions, finely chopped

Preheat grill to high.

Put chipotles, adobo sauce, brown sugar and oil in a blender. Grate in zest from lemon; purée. ( I prepared this ahead of time and refrigerated it).

Halve lemon lengthwise and slice 1/4" thick. Thread shrimp and pineapple on skewers, finishing each skewer with 1 lemon slice.

Mix chipotle purée and scallions in a large shallow dish. Add skewers and rub with chipotle marinade.

Grill skewers on oiled grates until shrimp are opaque, flipping once, about 5 minutes total.

Thank you Michael Lee for hosting this fun event!

  1. Look at that gorgeous pineapple! They sound great Kitty and sure do cook up quickly:@)

  2. I'm sure the chipotle tasted great with the pineapple and shrimp! I also freeze the remainder of chipotles on waxed paper and then stick in a freezer bag. My recipe called for only one chipotle pepper, so I have plenty left to try other recipes. Have a great week dear friend! xo

  3. Kitty, Your skewers with the pineapple and shrimp look delicious and like a perfect, quick meal for summer! Love the sunlight streaming in one your table :)

  4. This is my kind of recipe Kitty! I love love love grilled shrimp, and I bet that it is amazing with chipotle caramelized pineapple~pinning to try asap!

  5. I absolutely love your skewered shrimp and pineapple! And what a wonderful tip about saving the leftover chiles--that's a keeper. I can't thank you enough for participating at each and every MIC. I've sent a little gift your way, and it should arrive this week.xxoo

  6. Chipotle and pineapple... sounds like a winner of a combination Kitty! Isn't chipotle perfect for grilling! Thanks for the tip about freezing the chipotles! I'll be doing that with my leftovers!

  7. Those look good. I think eating kabobs is just plain fun!

  8. Yum! More food on a stick!

  9. Those look delicious Kitty. I would enjoy one right now. I love shrimp and fresh pineapple too.

  10. Kitty, this makes me want to go fire up the grill, but it's 1 AM. Think I'll put this on the menu soon. Kabobs are one of my favorite summer foods. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  11. You had me at "shrimp"!! I know the secret ingredient, but I cheated!! Love the little gnome tucked into your plant - so cute!!

  12. That looks delicious! Just leave the belly burner stuff off mine, LOL!
    I love grilled pineapple, and shrimp, wow!

  13. Yum, yum, yum! Did I mention yum?! Sounds and looks so good and you know what, I'm not even a fan of shrimp, but you have me wanting some right now! I made beef skewers a couple of weeks ago and used wooden skewers - that was awful! I will never do that again and will get some metal ones :) Love and hugs to you!

  14. Thanks for that great tip about freezing the chipotles on waxed paper before freezing them. Pineapple and shrimp are a delicious combination, especially when spiced up a little bit. This looks delicious, Kitty.

  15. Gosh Kitty, a party on a platter. I'll bring dessert. :)

  16. I forgot to say, I put my remaining chipotle in a blender, and then make a log, like a cookie log in plastic, then I put it in a small labeled lidded jar so it does not get lost or a UFO (Unidentified Frozen Object). You can just slice off what you want.


  17. That whole plate looks so mouth watering!! We need to try that one. (Do you know that you are one of my two major sources of pinned recipes that I want to try? I must just really love your cooking style.

  18. looks amazing and love the flavors!
