Grilled Spicy Shrimp Cups with Pineapple Aioli

Grilled Spicy Shrimp Cups with Pineapple Aioli #SundaySupper

Appetizers & Beverages | August 2, 2015 | By

What’s not to love about a tasty appetizer served in a neat little cup. The only bad thing I can say about them is that they disappear so quickly! Appetizers are my favorite way to eat. Not only are these Grilled Spicy Shrimp Cups with Pineapple Aioli mouth-wateringly delicious, but there’s no messy look to them like you may see with a layered dip after the second or third dipper ~ broken chips ~ pooled liquid. Grilled Spicy Shrimp Cups with Pineapple Aioli are fast to make and with this easy to follow recipe, you’ll be munching in no time. Spicy shrimp topped with sweet-tangy pineapple aioli all nestled in scooped tortilla chips.

Mix the aioli ingredients together and refrigerate until you’re ready to assemble (it can also be made the day before).

Combine the marinade ingredients in a large zip top bad, add the shrimp and marinate 10 minutes in the refrigerator.

Preheat the grill to about 400 degrees, oil the grates and grill the shrimp about 2 minutes per side. NOTE: A grill basket is recommended, but if you don’t have one, they can also be skewered.

After grilling, allow the shrimp to cool slightly, to room temperature and begin assembly.

To assemble, add a dollop of aioli to the cup then top with the grilled shrimp.

    Ok, am I in love or what??? This sounds delish and I know people will love the one bit goodness of this. I might have to make shrimp kabobs with your recipe with the aioli as a dipping sauce. Delish.

    I love everything about this appetizer! The shrimp marinade sounds perfect and that aioli is such a clever use of pineapple. I know we’ll have to try this.
