Jerk Shrimp Tacos with Pineapple

Prep time:15 min
Total time:23 min

Serves 4

Ingredients

1 pkg (454 g) Longo’s Signature Raw Black Tiger Shrimp (21-25 count), thawed and peeled

1/4 cup Longo’s Signature Caribbean Jerk Cooking and Grilling Sauce, divided

1/2 a fresh cored pineapple, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices

Warmed small flour or corn tortillas

Toppings

Shredded cabbage

Diced tomatoes

Chopped green onions

Cilantro

Directions

  • Toss shrimp with 2 tbsp of the jerk sauce. Brush pineapple slices with remaining sauce. Grill pineapple directly on greased preheated grill over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until well marked.
  • Meanwhile, grill shrimp in oiled grilling basket for 4 minutes, turning once, or until pink. Remove shrimp and pineapple from grill; roughly chop pineapple.
  • Serve shrimp and pineapple in warmed tortillas with suggested toppings or garnished to taste.
  • Tips
  • For a cooling tropical topping, finely chop 1/2 slice grilled pineapple and blend into 1 cup sour cream along with 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro and 1 tsp finely grated lime lest.
  • Replace the jerk sauce with Longo’s Signature Flame Roasted Red Pepper Sauce for a less spicy, but equally delicious, option.
