We love switching up what we have for dinner, and this Hawaiian Pineapple & Shish Kebabs recipe is a great way to do that. 

There is so much flavor packed into the recipe even though there are only 3 ingredients. So not only is it delicious, but it’s also super simple to throw together.

If you are new to using an air fryer, make sure you take a look at my YouTube video where I give great ideas on what to make first in your new air fryer


Ingredients and Supplies You’ll Need to Make Hawaiian Pineapple & Ham Shish Kebabs:


  • Pineapple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • Loin ham
  • Barbecue sauce


  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Skewers
  • Air fryer (Cosori Pro II)


What if I can’t find loin ham?

Depending on where you live your grocery store might not carry loin ham but don’t worry, there are other options. 

You can also use ham steaks or just about any other boneless precooked ham for this recipe.

Do I need to use the skewers? 

Honestly, no you definitely don’t need to use metal or wooden skewers for this recipe. You can always skip the step of making up the kabobs and put it all right in the air fryer basket and cook it just the same way for all of the ingredients.


How to Hawaiian Pineapple & Ham Shish Kabobs:

Step 1: Cut all of the ingredients

Prepare all the ingredients. Make sure that the pineapple and ham chunks are all in bite-sized pieces. 

Step 2: Put on skewers 

Once you have all the ham and pineapple chopped to your desired sizes, place the pieces on the metal skewer and then bast the ingredients generously with the barbecue sauce. 

If you want to skip the skewers, place the chopped ham and pineapple in a large mixing bowl and then pour the barbecue sauce in and mix it all together. 

Step 3: Cook the skewers

After the barbecue sauce has been applied to the ham and pineapple, place the skewers in the air fryer, making sure to leave some room between each to ensure everything cooks evenly.

Or spread the saucy pineapple and ham chunks in the bottom of the air fryer basket if you want to skip the skewers. 

Then turn the air fryer on to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C and cook the Hawaiian kabob ingredients for 7-10 minutes or until they are cooked to your liking.
