American | Shrimp with Pineapple Glaze

Posted on November 26, 2013

Quick and easy shrimp from Michael Symon's 5 in 5 cookbook.

Yield: 4 servings

shrimp with pineapple glaze


1 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup sherry vinegar

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 jalapeño (split lengthwise)

1 garlic clove, smashed

1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger

1 teaspoon coriander seeds, toasted and ground

1 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted and ground

24 medium shrimp (about 1 pound) shelled and deveined

kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup olive oil



Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

Put a nonreactive large saucepan over high heat and add the pineapple juice, vinegar, brown sugar, jalapeño, garlic, ginger, coriander, and cumin. Bring the mixture to a boil and allow to reduce until thickened while the shrimp is cooking, about 4 minutes.

Thread 3 shrimp onto each of 8 skewers, season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with the olive oil. Put the skewers on the grill, cover, and cook until the shrimp turn pink, about 2 minutes per side.

Remove the shrimp from the grill and put them on a platter. Strain the pineapple sauce into a bowl, brush it on both sides of the shrimp, and serve.
