Sweet-and-Sour Skewered Shrimp
You Will Need
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup pineapple preserves
4 teaspoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
30 uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 2 pounds)
1 to 2 large green peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, halved
What to Do
1. In a small saucepan, combine the first five ingredients; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.
2. Remove from the heat; cool. Set aside 1/2 cup for basting. Place remaining sauce in a large resealable plastic bag; add shrimp. Seal bag; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3. Drain and discard marinade. Thread the shrimp, green peppers and mushrooms alternately on six metal or soaked wooden skewers.
4. Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 2 minutes on each side. Turn and brush with reserved sauce. Continue grilling for 4-8 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, turning and basting several times.
