Spicy Citrus Shrimp Skewers!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!
So, last night I made a lot of Mexican food for my son, his birthday request. I have a bit of it left, but I want him to finish it up since it was his request. I do have a lot of extra rice left as well as some shrimp from frozen shrimp that I got for shrimp cocktail, so I thought it would be fun to us as a meal, not an appetizer. Lightly marinade and throw on the grill, serve it over some rice! Sounds great, right?
- 4 wooden skewers
- 12 medium cooked shrimp, thawed
- ¼ cup olive oil
- Juice from 1 lime
- 2 tsp. chili paste
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 2 tsp. cilantro
- 1 tsp. cumin
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
Soak your wooden skewers in water
Place all ingredients into a large zipper bag and shake to completely combine and coat the shrimp. Let marinate for 30 minutes.
Preheat grill to medium heat
Place 3 shrimp on each wooden skewer. Lay shrimp on preheated grill for 2 minutes, flip and repeat. Remove shrimp from grill.
Also serve as an appetizer by itself!
