Author Notes

I was looking for a fresh appetizer to serve outside on a warm breezy evening on the deck, and had some fresh pineapple and shrimp on hand. I adjusted an Emeril published recipe which included pineapple lettuce wraps to suite my needs, and was very pleased with the results! I served these to guests on a large platter and they disappeared before I could get halfway around the deck 🙂 —ChefFace
