Courtesy of Kauai Chef Michael Simpson
Ingredients (for two):
10 large fresh prawns, peeled and deveined (We used our favorite, Kauai Shrimp™)
1 red onion cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
I red bell pepper cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
I golden bell pepper cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
8 pieces pineapple chunks each cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
3 Tbs coconut oil
3 Tbs. Aloha Spice Uncle's Lu’au Coffee Rub
If using bamboo skewers soak them in water for an hour to prevent them from burning on the grill. Use two for each as it helps keep the food from spinning and falling off while cooking.
Skewer the fruit and vegetables. Peel and devein the shrimp and skewer.
Brush them with the oil and cast the coffee rub generously onto them.
Chill for 30-40 minutes to allow the rub to tenderize and work into the skewers.
Meanwhile prepare the grill and when ready lay on the vegetable skewers and shrimp skewers. If you want your vegetables more grilled, start them first, before the shrimp. Grill on one side for approx. 2-3 minutes, then turn and finish cooking. The shrimp should be fully pink on both sides.
