First you marinate your shrimp in the Sweet Terikaki sauce for 30 minutes. I’ve actually just given it a quick toss without marinating and it still has great flavor.These Grilled Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers are served over coconut rice and have a sweet Teriyaki glaze. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

Then you thread you shrimp and pineapple onto skewers. If you use wooden skewers it helps to soak them in water ahead of time so they don’t burn as badly. They will still char but won’t burn into two pieces.These Grilled Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers are served over coconut rice and have a sweet Teriyaki glaze. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comOnly a couple minutes on each side on the grill and they’re done. You just want to make sure the shrimp aren’t opaque any more and have a nice pink color.These Grilled Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers are served over coconut rice and have a sweet Teriyaki glaze. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

I serve this over coconut rice. Basically you just replace half of the water with coconut milk which gives it a slight hint of coconut flavor without being too overpowering.
