Sweet and Salty Shrimp


I am not sure if it is the fact that I am watching a lot of cooking shows like Master Chef, Top Chef and Hell's Kitchen or the fact that I learned to cook by watching the food network...but this week I wanted to do something on my own. I came up with:

Sweet and Salty Shrimp Kabobs


I made a shrimp marinade of 5 Tablespoons of olive oil, 3 Tablespoons of honey, 3 Tablespoons of soy sauce and salt and pepper. Then marinaded the shrimp while I chopped up the pineapple and onion.

Thread shrimp, onion, cherry tomatoes and shrimp onto skewers. Drip extra marinade on shrimp skewers.

Bake at 375 for 10 minutes and enjoy.


The good news: These turned out fairly good.

The bad news: They didn't really taste like either honey or soy sauce.

They did have a good flavor and of course tasted good with the pineapple, onion and tomato. Hubby and I thought that this might have been really good with garlic infused butter...the kids were getting ready for bed when I tried this - they were walking through the kitchen asking if they could stay up and try them...my kids love shrimp! :)

3 spoons...it's sad to say - but they weren't very spectacular...what would you have put on your shrimp?
