  • 3 tablespoons butter , divided
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 large cloves garlic , crushed (or 1 tablespoons minced garlic)
  • 2 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (juice of ½ a lemon)
  • 1 pound | 500 grams shrimp (or prawns), tail on or off
  • Sea salt , to taste
  • Cracked pepper , to taste (optional)
  • 1 cup fresh chopped pineapple
  • Lemon slices (to serve)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley


  • Soak the wooden skewers for at least 20 minutes before cooking. Once soaked, arrange shrimp onto skewers, alternating with pineapple pieces.
  • In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with the honey, garlic and soy sauce together. Stir until combined well and allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes, or until beginning to thicken into a syrup. Take off the heat and stir in lemon juice.
  • Season shrimp with a pinch of salt and a small amount of cracked pepper (optional) Using a brush, coat the honey garlic butter sauce on both sides of each shrimp skewer. Heat the remaining butter in a large pan or skillet (or grill pan) over medium heat. Working in batches of three or four, sear the skewers for 3-4 minutes on one side, while pouring a small amount of sauce over each shrimp while cooking; flip over and cook on the other side (pouring a little more sauce over the shrimp while cooking), for a further 3-4 minutes, or until the shrimp is completely cooked through and no longer opaque.
  • Remove from pan and serve immediately with any remaining sauce to use for dipping! Garnish with chopped parsley. Enjoy!
