"Shrimp is superb when grilled. You could also substitute the pineapple chunks for other seasonal fruits like fresh peaches or nectarines."

"Have made these twice now. I only used the shrimp alone and my husband couldn't stop eating them! Great taste and nice not to have breading for a change. Would highly recommend to all shrimp lovers."

"Very Good! Made these for dinner last night served with Jasmine Rice. I used medium shrimp - 2 1/2 dozen. With rice and a salad, it makes a light summer meal."
