Following the diagonal pattern of the eyes, remove eyes by making shallow v-shaped cuts in pineapple. Cut pineapple crosswise into 1-inch-thick slices. Remove core from each slice.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great recipe. Great recipe. BUT...there is always a but. You have to put salt and pepper on the shrimp. The brown sugar and italian dressing has a nice spicy sweet kick on the outside but the inside was bland. Fixed this for 19 and 20 year olds. They ate all the shrimp and pineapple. Had pineapple skewers for the people who didnt eat seafood and they loved it! Might try with chicken.Also i added a little honey and salt to the mixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't put this on skewers. I didn't put this on skewers. I tossed it all in a fry pan and had it with white rice. It was wonderful!! There was just the right amount of juice from the dressing and pineapple to lightly coat the rice. I also use canned pineapple instead of fresh, simply because I had some on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used an 8 oz. I used an 8 oz. can of pineapple tidbits (drained). I marinated for an hour but next time would marinate longer. I dumped the whole mixture into a hot skillet and cooked until the shrimp turned pink. I served it over rice. It is tangy, sweet and delicious! I will make this again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I also cooked in the frying pan as my grill has been lent out and it was too hot to broil. I also cooked in the frying pan as my grill has been lent out and it was too hot to broil. No cilantro but poured the mixture over rice and EVERYONE ate without picking or fussing. There wasn't even any left over for my lunch at school the next day! LOVED IT.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed - I expected more flavor. A bit disappointed - I expected more flavor. We made as directed except cooked it on the grill. Maybe marinating the shrimp for a few hours would make a difference? My teens added salt to give it more flavor.
