As autumn comes around and the weather begins to turn cold, we look forward to the holidays, the big dinners and bigger desserts.  To help balance that out, this jerk shrimp recipe will warm your stomach, without tightening your jeans.  It’s a quick and easy meal that can be prepared on the fly and will help you keep fit throughout this holiday season.

This shrimp pairs perfectly with a nice grain.  Both long-grain brown rice or couscous livens up the dish, especially with an added lemon slice.  Pair that with a dry white wine and you’ve got a well rounded and delicious meal prepared in under thirty minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 24 Shrimp
  • 1/2 Cup Jerk Marinade
  • Skewers
  • (Optional) Pineapple

  1. At least 30 minutes before cooking, marinate the shrimp inside of a ziplock bag.
  2. Place 3-4 shrimp on each skewer, alternating with pineapple chunks.
  3. Grill for 2-3 minutes per side over high heat.
