Today is National Shrimp Day and we're celebrating in Franklin County, Florida with a special receipe for Tupelo Honey Pineapple Grilled Shrimp.
1 1/2 pounds Gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup pineapple chunks
2 tablespoons lime juice, fresh
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Tupelo honey
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 teaspoons soy sauce
Arrange shrimp and pineapple chunks on wooden skewers and place in a flat bottom glass casserole dish. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, oil, honey, garlic and soy sauce, reserving one ounce for basting during cooking. Pour the remaining marinade over shrimp skewers. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Place skewers on grill about 6 inches from coals or gas flame. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until shrimp are opaque and pineapple begins to brown; baste with reserved marinade before turning. Serve with grilled vegetables.
