  • Two 9.2 ounce packages Gorton’s Jumbo Butterfly Shrimp

For The Pineapple Relish:

  • 1 jalapeno, seeds, membranes removed, and diced
  • 5 ounces jarred roasted red peppers, diced
  • 2 slices of a large red onion, diced
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces finely chopped fresh pineapple (or use an 8-oz can of crushed pineapple or pineapple tidbits)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (1 whole lime, juiced)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro

For The Firecracker Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (1 whole lime, juiced)


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.  Bake shrimp on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 10 minutes, then flip and bake another 6 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, prep all Pineapple Relish ingredients and combine in a small mixing bowl.
  3. In a separate small bowl, create the Firecracker Sauce by combining Sriracha, honey, and lime.

  4. To serve, add a small amount of firecracker sauce to each shrimp (add more if you want more heat on your shrimp!), then finish each shrimp with the Pineapple Relish and enjoy!
