Flaming Pineapple Shrimp Skewers Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound (240 g ) medium cooked,or uncooked cocktail shrimps(tails intact)
  • 1 can pineapple chunks in their own juice,drained (2 tablespoons juice reserved)
  • 1 teaspoon Firehouse Chili Powder(recipe follows)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • green pepper, sliced(optional)
  • firehouse chili powder ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder

Method

Step 1

Place shrimp and pineapple chunks in a medium bowl. Drizzle in reserved pineapple juice, and toss to coat. Sprinkle on Firehouse Chili Powder, and toss to coat.

Step 2

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil, and garlic. Add shrimp mixture, and sauté for 1 minute more. Return to the bowl. When cool enough to handle, thread pineapple and shrimp onto small wooden skewers, alternating pineapple, and shrimp.

Step 3

For Firehouse Chili Powder: Combine crushed red pepper flakes, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, and chipotle chili powder in a mini-food chopper or food processor. Process for 2 to 3 minutes or until well combined and powdered.

Step 4

Season pineapple shrimp skewers with resulting chili powder. Store remaining powder in an airtight spice jar or another container. You can whip up this home-blended chili powder if you have difficulty finding a salt-free blend. Even if a label doesn't disclose salt, look for other sodium keywords, such as monosodium glutamate. Spices or natural seasoning may be listed as an ingredient as well.
