Yield: Yields 12 skewers.
The pancetta and pineapple are a sweet and salty contrast and this quick, easy appetizer benefits from the subtle smokiness of a pimentón vinaigrette marinade.
Make Ahead Tips
The skewers can be assembled up to 1 day ahead and marinated up to 4 hours ahead and refrigerated.

I have made this twice without much success. It has great flavor but it’s really hard to get the pancetta cut to the right size to stay on the skewer while still getting 24 pieces from the amount listed in the recipe. Also, boiling the pancetta in advance made it rubbery. I think I would either sauté it slightly or leave it uncooked before I skewer it. I think I need to purchase double the amount listed to get the necessary number of cubes at a decent size.
