By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 8 minutes

Servings: 8



  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 juiced limes
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cut into 1-inch pieces red bell pepper
  • 1 cut into 1-inch pieces red onion
  • 1 (16 oz) can drained, cut into 1-inch pieces pineapple rings
  • 1 lb peeled and deveined large shrimp


Whisk together oil, lime juice, vinegar, sugar, red pepper, salt and pepper in a medium casserole dish. Add shrimp and marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.

Heat grill to 350 °F to 400 °F. Onto skewers, thread 1 piece of shrimp, 1 piece of bell pepper, 1 piece of onion and 1 piece of pineapple, alternating to fill the skewer.

Place shrimp kabobs on the grill, cover with grill lid and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until shrimp turn pink and are cooked throughout (turning once, halfway through.) Remove skewers from grill and serve immediately.
