Pineapple Salsa
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks, finely diced

  • Prepare Ingredients

    In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for the pineapple salsa until well combined. In another small bowl, toss the shrimp with 1 tbsp avocado oil and ¼ tsp each salt and pepper until combined.
  • Grill the Shrimp

    Preheat the grill to medium high heat, about 450 degrees. Cook shrimp on the preheated grill for about 3-5 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove shrimp from the heat and set aside.
  • Make the Spicy Sauce

    In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the remaining 1 tbsp avocado oil. Add the onion and saute until just translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the minced garlic and continue to saute for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chipotles in adobo, tomato paste, cumin, paprika, and remaining salt and pepper.
  • Mix Shrimp with Sauce

    Stir until combined and let simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the water, a spoonful at a time, until well combined. Turn off the heat and stir in the lime juice and cooked shrimp, coating the shrimp with the sauce.
  • Serve & Enjoy!
