These simple BBQ shrimp skewers with pineapple and bacon are an easy main dish for Memorial Day. If you are a fan of Hawaiian pizza, the same flavors appear in these skewers. The bacon and pineapple are a nice contrast to one another (salty and sweet) and pair well with the tamer shrimp. Serve your shrimp skewers alongside a refreshing slaw salad and maybe some brown rice.
15 strips bacon
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon onion, minced
8 ounces pineapple juice
4 ounces orange juice
1 pound of shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 whole fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and chunked
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees
Meanwhile add olive oil to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Add onion and garlic and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes.
Add ginger and lemon juice.
Repeat this process until all the shrimp and pineapple are skewered.
