"As a Hannakah recipe you're off the mark. Shellfish is not allowed in Jewish dietary laws."

"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."
