Pineapple Coconut Shrimp Kebabs

This is a sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.Pineapple Coconut Shrimp Summer is here and that means it’s time for grilling season! We have been spending so much fun time outdoors and cooking just about everything on the grill. We had friends over for dinner the other evening and these Pineapple Coconut Shrimp Kebabs were a huge hit! The shrimp was phenomenal. Marinated in light coconut milk, lime juice, and soy sauce, the key ingredient is by far Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum.  Three tablespoons of coconut rum is added to the marinade. The shrimp marinate in this mixture overnight. The result is a delicate coconut flavor balanced with freshly grilled pineapple chunks.

The good news is once they are marinated, all you have to do is assemble the kebabs and grill. Did I mention grilled pineapple is best? It’s so good! Pineapple Coconut Shrimp I like to serve to this dish with Texmati rice on the side and a sprinkling of cilantro on top. Such a beautiful and delicious dish. Making this dish crossed off a couple of firsts for me.

  1. I had never cooked with coconut rum before. It was so much fun and added such a unique flavor to the meal.
  2. I had never used a grocery delivery service before. Peapod provided all the food for this meal. It was so easy to use. I ordered my groceries online, chose a delivery time, I received a text where the driver was, and my groceries arrived at 6:25am the following morning. So easy.
