I asked local chefs for EASY recipes they whip up themselves when they head out to Superbowl parties. Over the next few days, I’ll be posting their go-to favorites that become everyone else’s favorites at any party they attend.
From Maro Molteni, Royal Hawaiian Fire Grill
Lemony Herb Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers
2 lbs large shrimp, deveined and peeled to tail
Zest 1-2 lemons
Mince 3-4 garlic bulbs
optional – 1 ripe pineapple peeled and cut into cubes
Finely chop fresh:
Mix lemons, garlic and fine-chopped herbs. Add EV oil sparingly until you have just a bit more liquid than a rub.
Add shrimp and coat to toss, adding oil as needed
Cover the shrimp and let marinate for 1-3 hours in refrigerator. Meanwhile, cut fresh pineapple into 1-inch cubes.
Remove shrimp from marinade and let rest for approximately 10 minutes.
Either grill shrimp in grill basket on grill or thread the shrimp with pineapple cubes on skewers – place on top tier of grill (not direct flame). Shrimp grill quickly, about 2 minutes per side. Shrimp are done when they turn pink and opaque.
