Step 1

Purée all ingredients in a food processor. Scotch bonnet peppers can be a little hot so you may want to start by adding half a pepper, testing the heat level and continue adding more until the marinade is as hot as you want.

Marinate the shrimp in half of the jerk marinade for at least 20 minutes and up to over night. Skewer the shrimp and pineapple and grill over medium-high heat until cooked, about 2-3 minutes per side.
