Pineapple Shrimp

I tried cooking  this dish, came out wonderful, so I thought of sharing with all of you.

1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup pineapple juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped, fresh cilantro leaves
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 ripe pineapple, peeled, cored and sliced into 2-inch chunks
4 metal or bamboo (soaked in water) skewers

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, pineapple juice, lime juice and cilantro. Pour half of the pineapple-barbecue sauce mixture into a resealable bag, add the shrimp and marinate for 15 to 30 minutes. (Reserve the remaining sauce mixture for basting and serving.)

2. Preheat the grill to medium-high.

3. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, discarding the leftover marinade. Skewer the shrimp and pineapple onto the skewers. Grill the skewers on both sides until the shrimp are just cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. While the skewers are cooking, brush them with some of the reserved sauce.

4. Serve the skewers with the extra pineapple-barbecue sauce for dipping.
