chefs spice Options

2 teaspoons allspice berries
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 pineapple, peeled, cored, chopped and quartered into 1/2" thick slices
2 onions, cut into 1/2" wedges
3 sprigs fresh oregano
1 pound shrimp, peeled
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Cooking Instructions

Soak the skewers in cool water for 30 minutes.

To a blender add lime juice, garlic, achiote seeds, allspice berries, oregano, salt and peppercorns. Blend until smooth.

With the blender running, add the olive oil in a steady stream to create an emulsion.

Assemble the skewers: alternate 3 shrimp, 3 pineapple wedges, and 2 onion pieces. Transfer to a shallow pan.

Add three sprigs of fresh oregano to the pan of skewers once they are finished being assembled. Pour the achiote paste over the skewers evenly and marinate for 1 to 3 hours in refrigerator.

Prepare a charcoal grill to high heat.

Place the skewers on the grill and cook about 3 to 4 minutes a side.

Serve with a squeeze of lemon.
