Grilled Shrimp Skewers
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 16 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  1. For marinade:
  2. Combine ingredients in a large freezer bag; shake for 1 minute.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  4. Skewer shrimp and grill over medium-high heat (or broil) until pink (about 2-3 minutes per side).
This is one of my favorite warm-weather dishes. It's quick, easy, and very light. I usually serve it on a bed of brown rice and pineapple-corn relish (see separate entry for relish recipe) Feel free to use smaller shrimp if you like - when I use small shrimp, I'll put them on a piece of foil on my grill instead of threading through skewers. Just double the amount of shrimp if you plan on using the smaller kind.
