Special equipment: Eight 6-inch wood skewers

Combine the allspice, thyme, cinnamon, cumin, nutmeg, cayenne, black pepper and salt in a bowl. Add the shrimp and toss thoroughly. 

Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil in a small nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp in a single, uncrowded layer and cook until no longer translucent in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. 

Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in the skillet. Add the pineapple and cook until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Turn and cook until again lightly browned on the underside, 1 minute more. Remove from the heat. 

Thread each skewer in the following order: mint leaf, pineapple chunk, shrimp, pineapple chunk and mint leaf. Serve warm or at room temperature.
