Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp (21 to 25 per lb), peeled and deveined
  • 4 thick (1/2-inch/1 cm) slices cored peeled pineapple
Coconut Rice:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 shallots thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Method

Coconut Rice: In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; cook shallots, garlic and ginger, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add rice, stirring to coat and lightly toast for about 2 minutes. Stir in coconut milk, 1/2 cup water and salt; bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to low; cook until rice is tender and no liquid remains, 12 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together lime juice, fish sauce, sugar and ginger.

Place shrimp and pineapple on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, brushing both with sauce and turning once, until shrimp are pink and pineapple is grill marked, about 6 minutes. Serve with coconut rice.
