  1. Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high (350°F– 400°F). Cut lower third of each onion into two 1½-inch pieces (for a total of 16 pieces). (Reserve remaining portion of onions for other uses.)
  2. Alternately thread bell peppers, shrimp, pineapple and onions onto skewers. Grill skewers 4 minutes per side or until shrimp turn pink, basting with sweet and sour sauce throughout.
  3. Transfer skewers to a platter, and serve with additional sweet and sour sauce.
  4. *If using wooden skewers, soak at least 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.
