Cilantro-Lime Marinated Grilled Pineapple Shrimp is easy to make, delicious, and super fresh.


I like to marinate the shrimp for about 2 hours. I also like using fresh pineapple when available.


However, canned also works, too. Buying the shrimp already deveined can save time.


Enjoy the fresh flavors of the cilantro, lime, and pineapple. Deelish!
