These weeknight-easy skewers marry gently spiced shrimp with juicy pineapple. Serve with rice and a fresh lettuce salad.


  • 1 pound uncooked jumbo shrimp
  • 1/2 of a fresh pineapple (1 pound)
  • 1/4 cup pineapple preserves
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. Peel and devein shrimp. Set aside. Cut pineapple crosswise into 4 slices; core, if desired, and cut each slice into quarters to make 16 small wedges. Thread shrimp and pineapple onto skewers. In a small saucepan, heat and stir preserves, orange juice, pumpkin pie spice and cumin until warmed through. Brush mixture onto kabobs.
  2. Grill, covered, on a well-greased rack directly over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are opaque and pineapple is heated through.
