For the coconut sauce:

  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce or to taste
  • 1 tsp lime juice

For the grilled shrimp:

  • 1 pound 20-25 or 16-20 shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 slices pineapple cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • Optional: chopped curly parsley to garnish


To make the coconut sauce:

  • Add the coconut yogurt, together with sriracha sauce and lime juice to a small bowl;
  • whisk well and refrigerate until ready to use.

To make the skewers:

  • Soak the skewers in water for 10 to 20 minutes.
  • Alternately thread shrimps and pineapple slices onto the skewers.
  • To cook the shrimp skewers:
  • Brush the grill grate with some oil and preheat at high for 5 minutes.
  • Place the skewers over the grill and cook for about 2 minutes per side.
  • Once done, place on a serving plate and serve with the coconut sauce.


  • To save time, buy tail-on shrimp that are already peeled and deveined.
  • Use raw shrimp, pre-cooked shrimp will turn rubbery and tough when cooked again.
  • Refrigerate the coconut sauce until ready to use.
  • Before using them, soak the skewers in water for 10 to 20 mins to avoid burning. Or you can invest in some metal skewers.
  • Use a preheated grill.
  • You can use an outdoor grill, grill pan, or broiler to make these shrimp skewers.
  • You don't have to keep the tails on the shrimp, but it does make for a nice presentation!
  • Brush the grill with some oil before cooking the shrimp, this allows you to flip the shrimp without tearing.
  • Don't overcook the shrimp. Shrimp cook quickly, you only need 2-3 mins per side. You know they're done when the shrimps turn pink and opaque
  • Garnish the shrimp with parsley or try some basil.
