Shrimp Kabobs!

So on the fourth of July I thought I’d do something different from your usual hamburgers and hotdogs and we “kabobbed” things! I love things on skewers, they are fun for kids to eat and fun for adults to eat as well.  So we did chicken, pineapple and shrimp kabobs and fruit kabobs for the kids.

They loved them! 

Out of the three sets of skewers we made up, the shrimp skewers were my favorite and honestly they aren’t hard to make.  Now we did chicken, bacon pineapple scewers, but we did pre-cooked bacon and raw chicken and the bacon burned a bit while the chicken was still raw. My suggestion is make sure the chicken is pre-cooked before you skewer it, or make sure the bacon is raw so that it all cooks together evenly.

Ingredients
  1. 1 8 oz bag of froze shrimp
  2. 1/3 cup of butter or margerine
  3. cajun seasoning
  4. 2 teaspoons of lemon juice.
Instructions
  1. First make sure you put your bag of frozen shrimp in the fridge about 6 hours before you plan on grilling them. You don't want them like a brick when you go to prong your shrimp.
Butter Seasoning
  1. Melt your butter and add the seasoning to taste and about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to 1/3 cup of butter.
  2. Skewer your shrimp, then baste them in the seasoned buttery sauce and throw them on the grill.
  3. Cooking time will vary depending on the heat of the grill, but you will know when the shrimp is done when the color of the shrimp turns from gray to pinish white.
Notes
  1. *Try it with pre-cooked bacon wrapped around the shrimp.

    Yes – this is beautiful and so tasty – we’ve done the bar-b-que skewers and it’s fun. Even with sweet potatoes (pre-cooked a bit) – glad you had a happy 4th :)

    Yummy, I love shrimp. See beautiful shrimp makes me jealous of those who have access to seafood. Thus is one of those things thst I miss about living in North Carolina. There was a guy just up the freeway that claimed he had fresh shrimp. It’s just not something you see on the side of the road when you are at least 6 hours from the coast.

    I might have to experiment with the frozen shrimp.

    Mmmm the shrimp kabobs do sound yummy. Plus, if the shrimp is on skewers, my kids won’t sneak in and eat all of the shrimp before dinner. It calls to them.

    My kids were asking for kabobs the other day. I’m not sure if they’ll go for the shrimp, but we can give it a try. They look delicious!

    It can be difficult to cook shrimp especially in kabobs. It can get too hard or too chewy real quick. Looks like you did a perfect job though. I love shrimp so this is totally making my mouth water!

    Great reminder for me! My family has been planning to go on a few picnics this year, and I always forget about skewers!!! My husband loves them whenever we have them, but for whatever reason they’re one of those foods I forget exist. Thank you for sharing!

    I love shrimps and what better way to enjoy it than shrimp kabobs. When I make these, I use minced garlic and melted butter. I will try your butter seasoning next time.

    Kabobs are so much fun for summer get-togethers. They’re easy to make, aren’t messy, and are a great way to have a myriad of yummy things at once. I love shrimp, too, so these are great!

    I LOVE shrimp!! I don’t eat meat so whenever we have a bbq I always throw some shrimp on a skewer and that’s my dinner! I love just adding some olive oil and fresh dill!
