Shrimp and Pineapple Teriyaki

Shrimp and Pineapple Teriyaki


I had a bunch of pineapple leftover after making my croque hawaii and I remembered how much I enjoyed the pineapple and teriyaki combination in the grilled teriyaki chicken and pineapple sandwich that I had had a while ago. Speaking of teriyaki, I had also been wanting to try shrimp teriyaki and I thought that a shrimp and pineapple teriyaki would be really good. I kept this recipe nice and simple with pretty much just shrimp, pineapple and teriyaki sauce. I worked the pineapple into the dish in three ways; I mixed some pineapple juice into the teriyaki marinade, I used big slices of the pineapple to complement the shrimp and I used some pureed pineapple to thicken up the body of the sauce. The shrimp and pineapple teriyaki turned out great! The sweet, tangy and juicy just warmed pineapple went really well with the succulent shrimp and the sweet and salty teriyaki sauce rounded out the flavours of the dish nicely.

I was just about to comment that you could make your own teriyaki instead of buying the stuff in a bottle when I realised the link to your recipe. Good job.

As usual your plate of food looks splendid.

I made this today! I was lazy and didn't reduce the marinade, so I may have lessened the effect, but it was very nice nonetheless. Teriyaki is wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

Bumped your blog when I was looking for a picture of "Reuben Sandwich". I am so amazed and impressed by your creative food.
It sounds more "Hawaiian" but still "Oishi-so~!"(means "looks delicious" in Japanese)
