Shrimp Pineapple Kabobs

Hi friends!

When I started Running in a Skirt three years ago, I never could have imagined how big a role food and recipes would end up becoming on my site.  I’ve always loved to eat, but my cooking skills came a little later in life.

In fact, once in my twenties, I burned water.  Yup, it can be done and this girl did it.

Sometimes I can’t believe how far I’ve come.  But with food like this Shrimp and Pineapple kabobs in front of me, the picture becomes clear.

I’ve really love creating recipes like this.

I especially love taking pretty pictures of the food.

There is something so organic in thinking about a recipe and deciding what to put in it.

Making sure it is tasty and EASY.

And then watching the finished product come together.

The final hurrah is placing all the items on the plate just right for that perfect image.

I’m still learning, but it’s a joy to put your heart into something and continually improve.

There was something about these delicious Shrimp and Pineapple kabobs that just had me reflecting on how far I’ve come this year.

Maybe it’s the anniversary of me leaving WLOS that has left me a little reflective today, but sometimes It’s nice to kind of evaluate things.  I may not ever have envisioned this life or planned for it.  But it is pretty darn awesome.

Thanks for coming along for the ride.

And oh yeah, please try these Shrimp Pineapple Kabobs.  They are absolutely totally amazing.  The hubs already requested I make them again 🙂

Sweet shrimp and pineapple are marinated to create these amazing Shrimp and Pineapple Kabobs!
Course: Grilling, Seafood
Cuisine: American, Asian
Servings: 6 skewers
Author: Julie Wunder
  • 18 large shrimp pealed & deveined (21-30 count or larger)
  • 12 fresh pineapple pieces cut 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
  1. Lay out the shrimp and pineapple on a cutting board.
  2. Thread the pineapple and shrimp on the skewers.
  3. In a large and strong zipper plastic bag, mix the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, honey and pepper.
  4. Add the skewers into the bag, careful not to puncture the bag. Mix the marinade around the pineapple and shrimp.
  5. Allow the bag to marinate in the fridge for one hour.
  6. When ready to cook, heat the grill to medium heat.
  7. Remove the kabobs from the bag and grill for 5-8 minutes or until shrimp start to curl and turn pink. Flip once. Do not overcook!
Recipe Notes

Add an additional hour to your prep time to count for the marinate time.

I used tail on shrimp for pretty pictures, but feel free to remove your tails for easy eating.
You may need to double bag the kabobs to prevent the skewers from poking through the bag.
This served two hungry adults with additional sides.

Tomorrow is my favorite blog day of the week, Fashion Friday.  I’m breaking out my favorite accessory of all time, sunflowers!

Your turn!

Is there something in your life that you love but never planned for?

    it’s too cold to grill lol if i were to bake these, how long and what temp do you think would be best??

    • JulieWunder February 21, 2019 at 1:56 pm - Reply

      You could do 400 for 4-6 minutes or until the shrimp just start to turn pink and curl. I’d keep the light on and keep an eye on them. Enjoy!

    the Honey doesnt say how much you should put in, there is no measurement. did you use Tablespoon? or cup?

    • JulieWunder March 12, 2016 at 6:55 pm - Reply

      It’s a 1/4 cup. Thanks for letting me know about the issue. I hope you enjoy them- they are so good!

    Found this on Pinterest and going to try it this week. Hint: Use a pair of kitchen shears to cut the point off of the skewers after skewering the kabobs and you won’t have to worry about them poking through the bag.

      That is a great idea! Big duh moment on my part. 🙂

      • Dana May 27, 2017 at 12:58 pm - Reply

        Is there a reason you can’t marinate the shrimp/pineapple before skewering them?

        • JulieWunder May 28, 2017 at 1:11 pm - Reply

          Nope! I just thought it was easier to skewer them before they were in the sticky marinate! And then they are ready to go on the grill faster. 🙂 You can do it the other way though.

    This looks amazing! Shrimp and pineapple two of my favorite foods and I think the boys would even love them! Too bad I don’t have a grill :/

      Doh! Mr. Cupcake needs to take care of that! Or is it an urban living issue? You could totally George Forman these 🙂

    This sounds like such a good combo! I have yet to grill fruit this summer, and I need to get on that!

    • JulieWunder August 12, 2015 at 8:55 pm - Reply

      Oh man!!! Yes you need too!! One of my favorite parts of the season.

    I love shrimp. It’s one of my favorite seafoods so these are for sure high on my list to make! I’m not a pineapple fan but I can just ignore that part 😉 Hope you have a great day, Julie!

    • JulieWunder August 12, 2015 at 8:51 pm - Reply

      haha! The marinade the shrimp alone would be tasty too!

    It certainly makes sense that you would be reflective just after your one year anniversary of leaving WLOS. I have enjoyed watching you grow in your skills with your recipes and presentation. You do a great job of expressing how much you are loving what you are doing without it coming across that you are trying to do that. Your blog is so naturally you. You are doing AWESOME !!

      Thank you so much! I appreciate your kind words!
