Shrimp Skewers

Stud and I decided to branch out a little.  We are pretty traditional folks.  We decided we would try and cook our food on a stick!  We grilled shrimp and pineapple skewers and served it with an amazing Thai sauce. You all should know by now how much Stud loves his Asian foods.  They were delicious and grilled pineapple might be one of my new favorite things, along with sesame oil.

Shrimp Skewers
1 lb shrimp (we used shells on
2 T. olive oil
2 T. salt
1/2 pineapple, cubed
For the Sauce:
3 T. water
2 T. fish sauce
1 T. rice vinegar
1/2 T. soy sauce
1/2 T. sesame oil
2 t. chili paste
1 1/2 T. sugar
Juice from 1/2 lime

Combine the salt with cold water and brine the shrimp for at least thirty minutes.  While they are brining, combine the sauce ingredients except the basil and cilantro.  Right before you grill them, drain the shrimp and toss them with the olive oil.  Spear them on skewers with the pineapple and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side.  Drizzle the sauce over the top and sprinkle with the basil and cilantro, then enjoy!

I actually really really loved the spicy sauce with the pineapple.  Sweet and spicy.  So good.  And these were very easy for the high level of tasty.  Skewers could be a regular over here, who knows what will come next.  Maybe chicken with peppers and onions???
