These grilled Teriyaki Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers are a delicious option for entertaining and easy enough for a weeknight meal.  Prepared with a homemade gluten-free teriyaki sauce and a fresh sweet pineapple, they are an easy and delicious meal to pull together in under 30 minutes. 

Take advantage of the great sale on Waterfront BISTRO raw jumbo shrimp at Safeway this week and grill up some delicious teriyaki shrimp pineapple skewers.

This recipe is gluten-free because we are using the new O Organics Coconut Aminos rather than soy sauce.  

While there are plenty of bottled teriyaki sauces on the market, it’s best to make your own so that you can control the ingredients and make it healthier. 

What is Coconut Aminos? 

Coconut aminos is a salty, savory seasoning sauce made from the fermented sap of coconut palm and sea salt.

Coconut aminos is similar in color and consistency to light soy sauce, making it an easy substitute in recipes.

While it’s not as rich as traditional soy sauce,  it has a milder, sweeter flavor. Yet, surprisingly, it doesn’t taste like coconut.

It’s soy, wheat, and gluten-free, making it a healthier alternative to soy sauce for those with certain allergies or food sensitivities.

It contains 422 mg. of sodium, compared to traditional soy sauce which has 1000 mg. per serving.  Perfect for anyone watching their sodium intake and naturally gluten-free, non-GMO and organic. 

The O Organics Coconut Aminos contains just three ingredients –  organic coconut blossom nectar, water, and Balinese sea salt.

Ingredients in Teriyaki Shrimp Pineapple Skewers

  • 1 lb. jumbo raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • fresh pineapple, cubed
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1″ cubes
  • 1/2 red onion cut into 1″ cubes

Gluten-Free Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1/3 cup O Organics Coconut Aminos 
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced or grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced or grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha

Note – I used Safeway’s new Signature SELECT Spicy Honey to add a little kick to the sauce. 

How to Make Teriyaki Shrimp Skewers With Pineapple

If using frozen shrimp, thaw under cold water in a bowl or colander and remove the shell, but leave the tail intact. 

Start by preparing the sauce in a small saucepan.  Combine the coconut aminos, honey, rice vinegar, minced garlic, minced ginger and sriracha.   Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes.  

Remove the sauce from the heat and let it cool.  It will thicken as it cools.   We will use the teriyaki sauce to glaze the skewers, rather than as a marinade. 

Next, soak the wooden skewers in water for about 10 minutes while you prepare the vegetables and shrimp to be skewered.

When preparing kebobs, it’s important to cut all your fruits and veggies in equal pieces so that they cook evenly. 

Layer the shrimp, pineapple, red bell pepper and 2 slices of red onion on the skewers and repeat.  Season the shrimp and veggies with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil or non-stick cooking spray before grilling. 

Heat the grill to 400° – 425° high heat and oil the grates with olive oil so that the shrimp doesn’t stick.   I use a paper towel doused in olive oil that I hold with tongs to oil the grates. 

Place the skewers on the grill and brush the tops with teriyaki sauce.  Cook for 3 minutes on each side, basting with sauce when you turn until the shrimp is bright pink. 

Remove from the grill and serve with rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice with the remaining sauce on the side.
