Caribbean Grilled Shrimp - 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.
