Ingredients

Skewers

  • 2 pounds extra-large uncooked shrimp, peeled and cleaned 
  • 12 skewers (wooden skewers should be soaked in water for 20 minutes before use)
  • 2 small zucchinis, sliced
  • 12 snackable peppers
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 red onion, chopped into 1in segments
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Chimichurri Sauce

  • 1 1/2 cups packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano leaves, chopped
  • 1 shallot, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

 

Chimichurri Directions

  1. Step One: Add all ingredients except olive oil to a food processor or high-powered blender. Pulse 2-3 times or until ingredients are chopped. 
  2. Step Two: Slowly stream the olive oil while pulsing the ingredients 3-4 times or until olive oil is incorporated. Make sure to scrape the sides to ensure all ingredients are combined. 

 

Shrimp Skewers Directions

  1. Step One: Make the chimichurri sauce and set aside in a small bowl.
  2. Step Two: Place the shrimp and the 1/2 tsp sea salt in a large bowl and toss to combine. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  3. Step Three: Fire up the grill on high. 
  4. Step Four: While the grill heats up, assemble skewers. Add 4-5 shrimp per skewer and a variety of vegetables in varied order. You can get creative and try different combinations. Leave about ½ inch of space on the ends. Place skewers on a baking sheet or plate. 
  5. Step Five: Place the skewers on the grill in a single layer and without touching. Cover the grill and cook for 3 minutes or until grill marks appear on the skewers. Flip the skewers and cook for another 1-2 minutes or until the shrimp are firm. 
  6. Step Six: Remove skewers from the grill and add them to a serving dish along with the chimichurri sauce in a bowl. Drizzle some of the sauce over the skewers for table presentation. 
  7. Step Seven: Serve immediately.
