Ingredients
 

For the dipping sauce

  • 1 can 28-ounces whole peeled tomatoes in tomato puree
  • ½ sweet onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 Tablespoons basil leaves chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh oregano chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Instructions
 

  • First make the dipping sauce. Pour the can of tomatoes and puree into a medium bowl. Crush the tomatoes with your hands.
  • Heat the olive oil a medium sauce pan over over medium high heat. Add the onions and garlic and saute until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and puree to the pan. Add the basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Simmer on low for 20 minutes.
  • While the dipping sauce is simmering, prepare the shrimp. Preheat the grill to medium.
  • Lay a length of bacon flat. Place a shrimp in the center, and place a chunk of pineapple on top of the shrimp. Fold the bacon around the pineapple and shrimp, securing with a wooden toothpick.
