Summer weather has me dreaming of the blue green clear water of the Caribbean, soaking in the sun. These kabobs are sure to take me there. Full of citrus, the heat of Calicutts' Caribbean Spice Blend, and sweet pineapple, they are perfect for a week night meal or a weekend BBQ. All that you have to do is fire up the grill!


  • 1 Jalapeño
  • 1/4 C Olive oil 
  • 1 Lime, zested 
  • 1/4 C Lime juice

  • 2 C Pineapple chunks 
  • 1 Red bell pepper, cut into 1” pieces

  1. Chop jalapeño pepper, removing seeds for less intense heat, if desired. Add to a bowl along with olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, orange juice, apple cider vinegar, and Caribbean Spice Blend. Whisk until incorporated to create marinade.
  2. Place 3/4 of marinade in a ziploc bag with shrimp and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, flipping every 30 minutes.
  3. After marinating, thread shrimp onto wet bamboo or metal skewers, alternating with pineapple and red bell pepper.

  5. Remove from heat, top with remaining marinade and top with scallions.
