Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers

Nov 22, 2019

Ingredients:

  • Skewers for Grilling
  • 1 Lb. Shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 1 Package Frozen Cauliflower Rice
  • 1 Fresh Pineapple, peeled and cored
  • 1 Red Onion, Cut into 1-inch Chunks
  • 2-3 Bell Peppers, Any Color, Cut into 1-inch Chunks
  • 1 Tbsp. Mrs. Dash Sodium-Free Seasoning
  • 1/4 Cup Lime Juice
  • 2 Cloves Minced Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions:

If using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water for at least 30 minutes prior to grilling. In a plastic zipper bag, combine cleaned shrimp, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, Mrs. Dash, and if desired, salt and pepper. Shake well to coat the shrimp and place in fridge to marinate while prepping other ingredients. Chop the pineapple, bell peppers and red onion into one inch pieces. Preheat your grill to 350 degrees, or to medium heat, or use an indoor grill pan. Thread skewers with shrimp, pineapple, bell peppers, and red onion until each skewer is full, leave about 2 inches on each side of the skewer. Grill each skewer about 5 minutes on each side until shrimp are cooked through and you see grill marks on the shrimp and pineapple. Use leftover marinade to spoon over shrimp while grilling. Prepare cauliflower rice according to package directions. Serve over cauliflower rice and add a veggie-filled side salad. Serves 4.
