Shrimp On The Barbie

This post is sponsored by The Shrimp Council

‘Twas a warm spring evening. The air smelled of charcoal and was dotted with bits of pollen. Matt and Mazen were chasing Pumpkin the Cat around our yard, and I was putting the last few pieces of pineapple on shrimp kebobs.

After a few minutes on the grill, it was time to eat. Pineapple Shrimp Kebabs for all!

These kebobs are marinated in orange juice and soy sauce with a kick of red pepper flakes and are finished with juicy pineapple and red peppers. Grilled pineapple is one of my favorite foods!

I prepared a honey-lime-cilantro yogurt dip to go with them. Drizzle it on top of your kebob or dunk away!

Tropical Grilled Shrimp with Yogurt Dip

by Kath Younger

Ingredients (About 8 skewers)

  • 1 pound of large shrimp (20-24 shrimp per pound)
  • 2 bell peppers
  • 1 pound pineapple (about 2-3 cups of cubes)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 16-20 skewers

For the yogurt sauce

  • 1 cup full-fat yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped fine
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes, or to taste


  1. Combine OJ, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, lime and honey in a bowl and mix. Add peeled shrimp and marinate at least 30 minutes.
  2. Soak skewers for a few minutes to prevent burning (if using wooden ones).
  3. Cut bell peppers into slices.
  4. Prepare pineapple into cubes.
  5. Preheat grill.
  6. Assemble double skewers by putting two skewers through one shrimp and threading on pineapple and red pepper, alternating until you are all out of ingredients.
  7. Grill shrimp a few minutes per side – until opaque. Time will depend on how hot your grill is, but you’ll need less time than you think or your shrimp will get rubbery.

For the yogurt sauce

Combine all ingredients and stir well.
