Tandoori Shrimp Skewers with Pineapple Chutney

FOR THE SKEWERS, COMBINE:
FOR THE CHUTNEY, SIMMER:
Don’t marinate the shrimp more than an hour or they’ll turn mushy. You can prepare the chutney 1 to 2 days before serving.
For the skewers, combine yogurt, ginger, garlic, lemon juice, curry powder, paprika, and salt in a bowl. Add shrimp, toss to coat, cover, and refrigerate 15–30 minutes.
For the chutney, simmer pineapple, sugar, pineapple juice, lime juice, and chili garlic sauce in a saucepan over medium-high heat, 8 minutes. Stir together cornstarch and water, add to pineapple mixture, and simmer until thickened; season with salt. Refrigerate chutney until ready to serve.
Thread 2 shrimp onto each of twelve 5-inch bamboo skewers, scraping off excess marinade.
Heat a grill pan or nonstick skillet over medium and coat with nonstick spray. Arrange skewers in the pan and sauté until shrimp are firm, 2–3 minutes per side. Arrange skewers on a platter, squeeze lime juice over top, and sprinkle with mint. Serve skewers with chutney.
Thread 2 shrimp onto skewers, curling them around each other so that the tails are at opposite ends.
