- 1 tablespoon lime juice (preferably fresh) or 1 tablespoon lemon juice (preferably fresh)
- 1⁄2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

- Also, defrost shrimp, if needed.
- Cut pineapple lengthwise into 1/2" thick slices.
- Chop some of the pineapple until it measures 1/2 cup and set aside for relish.
- Halve each pineapple slice crosswise to equal 8 pineapple planks.
- Use 1 tbs of your melted butter and brush the planks on both sides, then set aside.

- Stir in shrimp.
- Cover and let sit at room temperature, stirring occasionally.
- Remove shrimp, discard marinade.
- Thread 1 jumbo or 3 large on each skewer, set aside.

- Cover and set aside until serving time.
- Grill shrimp kabobs and pineapple planks on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals.
- Grill until shrimp are opaque and pineapple is heated through, turning once through grilling time.
- Allow 10-12 min for jumbo shrink, 6-10 minutes for large shrimp and 6-8 minutes for pineapple planks.
