Marinade:

•juice and finely grated zest of one lime

•2 tablespoons olive oil

•1/2 tsp cinnamon

•1/2 teaspoon sea salt

•1/4 tsp pepper

•1 finely minced shallot

•1 tsp crushed chili sauce (more or less to taste depending on how much heat you prefer)

Mix together well and add to a large zip-loc bag along with 12 jumbo shrimp.

Squeeze the air out of the bag and let the shrimp marinate for about 20 minutes before placing them on pre-soaked bamboo skewers along with:

 

•fresh pineapple chunks

•red pepper chunks

 

Glaze:

Add the remaining marinade from the bag to a small pot along with

•1/4 cup honey

Simmer for a few minutes.

Place the kabobs on very hot preheated grill for about 3 minutes per side or until the shrimp are fully cooked. Brush the glaze onto the kabobs while grilling. Serve.
