Preparation

  1. Prepare the marinade: In a bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice and zest, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and mix well. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare shrimp skewers: Thread the marinated shrimp and pineapple pieces alternately onto the metal skewers.
  3. Preheat the grill: Preheat the grill and as soon as the charcoal is glowing, place the skewers on it. Grilling: Grill the shrimp skewers for about 4-5 minutes per side, until the shrimp are pink and the pineapple pieces are lightly caramelized.
  4. To make pineapple chili dip: Add the rest of the fresh pineapple chunks, chopped red chili, lime juice, honey and a pinch of salt to a blender. Blend well until smooth. If necessary, you can add a little water to achieve the desired consistency.

HINT: Using two metal-skewers per shrimp skewer has a decisive advantage when grilling: it prevents the shrimp and pineapple pieces from turning or slipping on the grill when turned. The stable double skewer construction keeps the ingredients securely in place and allows them to be grilled evenly. The recipe also works on a gas grill.
