    Mom and I threw together a marinade this afternoon. The flavors were subtle yet delicious! I served these with grilled steak and veggie kabobs. The leftovers will be great on a salad tomorrow!

      This recipe was good. It was easy to cut in half for just my husband and me, and the flavors are subtle, yet delicious! :) I bought peeled, deveined, tail-on, frozen colossal shrimp (which are pretty hefty - they don't name them "colossal" for nothing!), but I think the next size down would work perfect for this recipe (the pineapple chunks looked pretty tiny). For the marinade, I draped an open gallon-size Ziploc over the sides of a bowl, and mixed the marinade right in the bag. I reserved the juice from a 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks that I already had (which came out to about 2/3 of a cup), used 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 heaping teaspoon of minced garlic from a jar, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, a few shakes of salt, and 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. After I put the red pepper flakes in, it looked like a TON. I got all freaked out that we were going to be breathing fire (you know, like that Wendy's commercial), so I took a tiny (it was REALLY small) bit out with my fingers - which probably didn't really make a difference. The thawed shrimp marinated in the fridge for 9 1/2 hours, and the marinade smelled wonderful when I opened the bag to skewer them. I made 2 skewers for each of us. Thanks AQueen! Made for PAC Spring 2009.
