  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika

Instructions

  • Place wooden skewers in water to soak.
  • Season the shrimp with the ingredients listed above and set the shrimp aside to marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  • While the shrimp is marinating, slice the pineapple, peppers, and onions for the skewers.
  • Prepare the skewers by alternating the pineapple, peppers, onion, and shrimp until all are used. Place the prepped skewers on a baking sheet. Be sure to reserve any remaining marinade.
