  1. 1 teaspoon olive oil
  2. 12 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  3. Fine sea salt and ground pepper
  4. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  5. 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  6. 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  7. 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  8. 2 tablespoons minced scallion
  9. 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  10. 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  11. 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
  12. 1 large ripe pineapple—peeled, quartered lengthwise and cored
  13. 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and cook over high heat for 1 minute. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are cooked through, about 2 more minutes. Stir in the orange juice, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, the scallion and cilantro, transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice with the ginger, sesame oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Brush the pineapple with the mixture and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  3. In a dry skillet, toast the sesame seeds over high heat, shaking the pan, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  4. Light a grill or preheat the broiler. Grill or broil the pineapple for about 2 minutes per side, turning once, until lightly browned. Cut each quarter crosswise into 6 pieces and arrange the pieces on 6 plates. Set 2 shrimp on each plate, spoon on a little of the orange juice marinade and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

Suggested Pairing

Because ginger, lemons and spices can overwhelm dry, subtle wines, look for a simpler aromatic white, such as a West Coast Riesling, which is acidic enough to stand up to the tartness and fruity enough to magnify the flavors of the shrimp.
