Shrimp, Pineapple and Green Pepper Kebabs with Hot and Sour Dipping Sauce

Makes 4 Servings

Ingredients

1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha chili sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 ¼ pounds shelled and deveined large (18-21) shrimp
1 large green bell pepper, cut in 1-inch squares, 36 pieces
36 fresh pineapple cubes
12 (10-inch) bamboo skewers

Directions

Heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high for direct grilling. In a small pot, combine the pineapple and lime juices, soy sauce, stevia, chile sauce, and ginger. Cook over medium-high heat and reduced to 1/2 cup, 5-6 minutes. Pour the sauce into a small serving bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, to assemble the skewers, bend a shrimp into a “C” and push it to the bottom of a skewer. Add a pepper square, then a pineapple chunk, threading it through the 3/4-inch side. To fill the skewer, repeat 2 more times. Make 11 more skewers. Coat the skewers with cooking spray.

Brush the grill with oil. Arrange the skewers on the grill, perpendicular to the grate. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn and cook 2 minutes more. Keep turning the skewers every minute to avoid charring, 7-8 minutes in total, or until the shrimp are white in the center.

Place the kebabs on a serving platter and brush on both sides with some of the sauce. Serve immediately, passing the remaining sauce in a small pitcher.
