To make grilling easier double skewer the items – prevents the shrimp, pineapple and scallions from spinning.

This is a great recipe that I have made many times and included various other veggies on occasion. Please note that you should not make the skewers in advance as bromelain , a tenderizing enzyme found in the pineapple, will start making the shrimp mushy within an hour and will literally make them fall off the skewer after 3-4 hours. If I absolutely need to do them in advance, I skewer and store the pineapple separately. Same flavor - no mush.
