Step 1

Heat coriander, cumin and turmeric in a skillet until fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Pour into a food processor and add the peppers, onions, serrano peppers and garlic. Process until smooth.

Step 2

Add honey, lime juice, and zest and pulse a couple of times. With the food processor running, slowly pour in the oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 3

Toss shrimp with a little bit of the paste and spread on a baking sheet.

Step 4

Bake at 350 degrees for about 5-6 minutes, then broil for 1 minute (keep an eye on it for it not to overcook and become rubbery). Use a toothpick to skewer a cooked shrimp and a piece of pineapple together, proceeding until all shrimp have been skewered or simply lay both on a platter. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with additional pepper paste for dipping.
