shrimp-and-pineapple skewers... 30 minutes

the goods:
6 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 pound large or jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined (tails left on)
(I also threw some chicken in there for my kids)
1/2 pineapple, cut into 1 and 1/2-inch pieces
2 bunches scallions (white and light green parts only), cut into 2-inch pieces

Soak eight to ten wooden skewers in water, 15 minutes. Heat grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Whisk together honey, soy sauce, and vinegar. Reserve half the sauce for serving.

Thread shrimp, pineapple, and scallions (and chicken) onto skewers. Grill until shrimp begin to turn opaque, 2 minutes. Brush with sauce, flip, and brush again. Grill until shrimp are opaque throughout and pineapple and scallions are lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Serve with reserved sauce.
