Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers

These are really quick and easy to make. The mix of lemon and cilantro are super flavorful!  Be careful not to purchase the pre-cooked shrimp as the recipe doesn't taste quite as good. (We made that mistake)

Prep: 5-10 min
Cook: 8 min

1 lb medium uncooked shrimp, shells removed
4 wooden skewers soaked in water for 1 hr, or metal skewers
8 ounces fresh pineapple cubed
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon flaxseed oil (optional)

Preheat oven to broil or ignite grill.
Thread shrimp and pineapple evenly onto skewers
Combine olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, and chili powder
Drizzle over skewers
Cook 8 minutes, turning at the halfway point
Remove from heat and drizzle with flaxseed oil
