Island Shrimp Skewers

It's a Sunday in November, which means it's time to trot out another Tailgating Recipe.  Shrimp can be a terrific Tailgate staple, because it takes just minutes to go from cooler to plate.  I love this quick and easy recipe for Grilled Pineapple and Coconut Shrimp Skewers because if you close your eyes you can almost feel the warm tropical breezes.  In upstate NY, you may need the assistance of a few alcoholic beverages to get you to feel the warmth, but for a tailgate it's likely you've got that covered.

Start your morning by dumping your frozen shrimp into a baggie with a can of coconut milk, a tsp of thinly sliced ginger, and 1/4 tsp of sriracha hot sauce.  If you don't have sriracha, you can substitute with a chili sauce of your choice.  Let that marinate all morning.  You'll want to thaw out your shrimp if you don't have all morning for them to thaw out on their own.

Just before kickoff, thread the shrimp alternately with pineapple chunks(ideally fresh, but canned if you don't have fresh,) on skewers that have been soaked in water.

Grill for just 1 1/2 - 2 minutes per side.  Quick, Easy, and Yummy.  The sweetness of the pineapple and the heat of the shrimp will play off of each other.

Thanks for popping in and check out the other great recipes at Tiny Skillet's Tailgating Time and Remodelaholic's Recipe Swap Party.
