  • 8 skewer sticks
  • cooking pot
  • grill


  • 8 skewers
  • ½ pineapple ripe
  • 24 baby potatoes or cut big ones
  • 2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper

to marinade the pineapple:

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon liquid honey
  • 1 spicy small red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon spicy red pepper powder
  • salt and pepper


  • Rinse the baby potatoes. If you can't find small potatoes, use the regular hard boiling potato and cut it into pieces after cooking. Make sure you don't let the potatoes cook too long because then they fall apart when skewered.
    Boil the baby potatoes until al dente (depending on the thickness). Rinse them under cold water and let them cool.
  • Make a herb oil for the skewers with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, pepper, salt and rosemary. Mix the cold potatoes with this oil.
  • Cut the pineapple into slices of +/- 2 / 3 cm thick and remove the skin. Then cut into cubes of 2-3 cm. I did not use the hard center part (you can mix it in the blender with some coconut water and strain. A wonderfully refreshing summer drink)
  • Make the marinade for the pineapple cubes. Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil with the honey, finely chopped chili pepper (without seeds), pepper and salt.
    Mix the pineapple cubes in this marinade and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Now skewer the baby potatoes and pineapple alternately on the skewers. Grill them in the pan or BBQ. Sprinkle some spicy paprika powder on top and if wanted some coarse salt…


As soon as the summer temperature arrives and we all dive into the closet to get out sandals and shorts, we spontaneously think about our garden parties…. And here in the south of Spain, those parties are often accompanied by a BBQ or “plancha” (=read: hot plate). Even writing this recipe makes me want to invite friends and neighbors. I will therefore provide a fresh mocktail, some snacks and enjoy. These potato skewers with spicy pineapple have been popular several times… A simple recipe and you can prepare them in advance. So definitely try it… Did you know that on the homepage of my blog you can find a Spotify link with a list of more than 2 hours of southern “feel good” music? Guaranteed to put everyone in the right mood with this… Let’s party ?
