4 servings
Active Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 3/4 hours (includes marinating time)

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, very finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 tablespoons Jamaican jerk sauce, (see Note)
  • 20 large shrimp (about 1 pound), peeled and deveined
  • 3 cups cooked white rice
  • 1 16-ounce can black beans, rinsed
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple chunks, (about 1/2 pineapple)
  • 6 thick scallions, trimmed and cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 1 head Boston lettuce, washed, dried and torn
  • Lime slices for garnish
PREPARATION
  1. Bring pineapple juice to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook until reduced to 1/3 cup, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in lime zest and juice, oil, garlic, thyme, oregano, cinnamon and allspice. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Whisk together jerk sauce and 1/4 cup of the pineapple-juice marinade in a shallow dish just large enough to hold the shrimp. Add shrimp and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Toss rice and black beans in a large bowl with the remaining marinade. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Preheat grill. Remove the shrimp from the marinade. (Discard the marinade.) Thread 4 long or 8 short skewers with the shrimp, pineapple and scallions. Grill, turning once or twice, until the shrimp are cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes.
  5. Arrange a bed of lettuce on a large platter. Spoon the rice-and-bean salad on top. Slide the shrimp, pineapple and scallions from the skewers onto the rice; garnish with lime slices.
TIPS & NOTES
  • Note: Prepared jerk sauce is a hot and spicy sauce used to marinade meat before grilling or roasting. It can be found in the gourmet section or with barbecue sauces in most supermarkets.
