MY REVIEW

Very tasty, however next time I'll cook the onions separately so they aren't so raw when cooked on the same skewers as the shrimp. Also the marinade would have been great on the onions too, something else I'll try next time!

This is a great recipe. I didn't have two hours to marinate the shrimp so they basically only marinated while I cut up the onion and opened a can of pineapple chunks, but the shrimp still tasted delicious! We'll definitely make these again during the summer and possibly during tailgating season, too!
