  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 large cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice about one half of a lemon, freshly squeezed.
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 pound shrimp
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt or more if desired
  • 1/4 tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 cup chopped pineapple
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley optional


  • Submerge skewers in water while prepping the other ingredients.
  • Heat 2 of the 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter, honey, garlic, and soy sauce over medium heat.
  • Stir until well combined, bring to a slight boil, and then allow to simmer for 4-5 mins until thick- ened.
  • Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
  • Place the shrimp and pineapple pieces, alternating them on the skewers. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Brush the sauce on both sides of the skewers.
  • In a large pan melt 1-2 tablespoons of unsalted butter over medium heat.
  • Sear the skewers for 3-4 mins per side, brushing sauce on the skewers as it cools. Skewers are ready when the shrimp is pink and not opaque.
  • Remove from pan and serve.
  • The additional sauce can be used for dipping or poured over rice.


  • Soak the skewers for 20-25 mins for best results.
  • Do not overcrowd the pan, cook 3-4 skewers at a time
  • This can be done on a grill, instead of pouring the sauce, brush the sauce onto the skewers.
