Shrimp Porcupine with Miso Aioli Sauce

Shrimp Porcupine Recipe

Shrimp Ingredients
  • 40-to-60 shrimp (31/40), peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 Pineapple
  • Wood skewers

Shrimp Instructions

  1. Fill a sauté pan with water. Add the olive oil and a nice pinch of salt. Bring to a rolling boil.
  2. Cook the shrimp in batches of 12-15, depending on the size of your pan. Cook them for 20 to 25 seconds and remove them immediately with a slotted spoon. Let them cool off on a plate or half-sheet pan.
  3. The shrimp will taste crunchy and residual heat will finish cooking them while cooling off.
  4. Mount 2 or 3 shrimp on a skewer, depending on the length of the skewer. Repeat until all the shrimp are on a skewer.
  5. Cut off the base of the pineapple, so it will stand flat on a plate.
  6. Poke the skewers in and around the pineapple in a V shape.
  7. Pour the Miso Aioli Sauce (recipe below) into small cups and place them around the pineapple.
