Shrimp on the Bar-B

We’ve been experimenting with new recipes for fish lately. So, a few weeks ago we broke out the grill and made some sweet and tangy Shrimp and Pineapple Kabobs which made a quick and easy healthy dinner with lots of flavor and veggies. The basic idea for the recipe below came from a Whole Foods fish booklet sitting at their fish counter.

Shrimp and Pineapple Kabobs

1 lb. large (26/30) peeled and deveined shrimp
1/2 fresh pineapple cut into bite size chuncks
1/2 white onion cut into bit size pieces
1 medium zucchini sliced into 1/2 in rounds
1 bell pepper (red or orange) cut into bite size pieces.
1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette

Soak bamboo skewers for at least 30 minutes in water. Alternate veggies, pineapple and shrimp on soaked skewers. Oil grill and pre-heat to medium high.  Place skewers on hot grill and cook 5-7 minutes on each side, turning once and basting often with the vinaigrette. Serves 3-4.
