This easy to make tropical rendition of shrimp and rice will make any night a special occasion. Bring some smiles to your table with my Pineapple Shrimp Luau.
Of course, I have no idea what the dish was called, but Lisa named the dish for me after I set the plate down on the table, as she told me it made her feel like she was at a Hawaiian Luau!
I offered to take the dish out of the pineapple and serve it on a plate but she adamantly refused, saying it was so much fun to eat it the way I served it. Who knew?
The flavors of the aromatic onions and peppers with the sweet flavor of the pineapple combined so well with the spicy flavor of the blackened shrimp. I had fresh corn on hand and although it’s not really a tropical vegetable I thought it would make a nice addition to the dish adding flavor and color to the rice.
Garnish with some chopped cilantro and scallions to add another layer of flavor and a dash of color to the dish.
Then it’s time to sit down and enjoy the deliciousness you created with my Pineapple Shrimp Luau! It really is a very simple dish to make and your family and friends will have fun eating it, making dinner an event to remember.
