Chinese Shrimp Kabobs

"I shall be but a shrimp of an author." - Thomas Gray

These kabobs are incredibly simple to make. They taste great and are very healthy, too.

  •  1 bag frozen raw shrimp, thawed and deveined, with tails removed
  • Colored bell pepper, chopped into pieces
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Green onions, sliced into 2 inch pieces
  • Chinese Hoisin Marinade sauce
 Prepare and rinse shrimp thoroughly in cool water. Using all-metal skewers, place a shrimp, a pineapple chunk, a piece of bell pepper and a piece of green pepper on a skewer, repeat until skewer is full. Repeat with all skewers. Line a jelly-roll pan with foil and place a wire rack on top. Lay each skewer on the wire rack, with a little space between each one. Turn on the broiler and allow to heat, then place the pan with the skewers in the oven, about 4 inches from the broiler coils. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
In a small dish, pour out some of the Hoisin marinade sauce. Using a small brush, coat the contents of each skewer with the sauce. Place the pan back in the oven and cook for another 4 minutes. Remove contents of skewers and serve with brown rice, if desired.
