Nice Tropical flavorful twist on grilled shrimp. Not too difficult to prepare and very tasty. Marinate overnight for best flavor (That is the reason the recipe says 8 hours prep time, meaning overnight)

Great recipe!!!! Awesome and very easy to make. Next time I will make more of the sauce so I can put it over rice. Came out juicy and sweet, but not overly sweet. There is no way I am not making this again.

LOVE this marinade. I used regular coconut milk and soy sauce. Made a second batch to serve over rice. Marinated tofu and shrimp for about 2 hours. The flavor didn't really come through with the shrimp so I recommend letting them soak overnight if you can.

I thought this was a good basis for a recipe. I added chopped cilantro along with one deseeded tomato (instead of red bell pepper) to the salsa, also used a little less pineapple than asked for, this salsa was perfect. For the shrimp I omitted the soy sauce and just added some extra salt. This worked out great, will probably make again!
