Quick and Easy 5 Ingredient Pineapple Skewers are the Perfect Summer Grilling Recipe. Takes less than 30 Minutes to Make on the Stove Top or a Grill.
Be prepared to be skewered!
It’s skewer week here on my blog and I can’t wait to show you all the recipes I have in store!
First up, this is the easiest Pineapple Skewer recipe you will ever make!
If you are feeling lazy on some days and don’t feel like making a huge meal, this would be the perfect meal!
Believe me, even though I am a food blogger, some days, I just don’t feel like cooking. The Chinese restaurant menu is just calling my name and I am too weak to resist. “Just this once”, I say to myself, “let someone else do the cooking”
But, the thought of saving money on ordering in is far too alluring and I stop myself from dialing. I rummage through my pantry and come up with the simplest recipe that will require no effort on my part
That’s the origin story of these pineapple skewers.
I had an onion, a red bell pepper and a pineapple can. There was some left over basil pesto from my vegan potato salad which would be the perfect topping for this skewers
The vegetables were roughly cut up and I had pineapple that I bought for my antioxidant smoothie. Since I am addicted to my new stove top grill, I figured I should just put the ingredients into a skewer and grill them!
You can eat them by itself, but, I also discovered a new product on the market and I tried it out.
There are new mini Naans made by the famous company that makes all the naan products. They have come out with a new mini Naan that can be heated up in a toaster oven!
Can you believe how awesome that is?!?!
I put them on these mini naans and took a bite! It was the best meal I have ever had! It was sweet, juicy, salty and just a little crunchy! All the flavors in one little meal.
What more could I ask for!
I was so eager to try them that I forgot to photograph them. I actually had to go out and get all the ingredients and make them again just for the blog.
Not that I am not complaining! I could make this recipe about a thousand times a day and still have time to sleep 8 hours.
So, I don’t want to take up any more of your time. I am sure you want to run to the kitchen and make this recipe!

Next, skew the pineapple chunk
Skew one of the red onion wedge
Repeat the above steps 2 more times and set it aside
Complete the process for the remaining 5 skewers
Heat the stove top grill for about 3 minutes or until completely hot
Baste the skewers with the Maple syrup and place them on the grill
Generously baste the skewers with the basil pesto

- I basted each side with the pesto as I turned the skewers
