DIRECTIONS

  • If you are going to use wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes.
  • In a hot, dry skillet, toast cumin, coriander, fennel seed, fenugreek, and nigella seeds just until fragrant; remove from pan immediately so as not to burn.
  • Grind spices, with chili powder and salt, either in a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder, to a fine powder; transfer to a non-metallic bowl and stir in the lemon juice.
  • Add shrimp to the bowl and toss to coat; marinate 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat broiler.
  • Thread skewers with 3 shrimps alternating with 3 pieces of pineapple.
  • Broil 4 inches from heat source until shrimp is opaque and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side; rush with marinade.
  • Serve with plenty of cilantro sprinkled over top.
