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.

Heat grill.

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.
