I know you are going to love these Garlicy Shrimp Kebabs with peppers, onions, and mushrooms as much as Paul and I do. Shhh! The best part is it is SO simple.
~2lb bag of JUMBO shrimp
~a red, orange, and yellow pepper, cut in bite-sized chunks
~a red onion, cut in bite-sized chunks
~8oz container of whole mushrooms cut in half
~a bottle of Garlic Expressions dressing (found usually near the fresh baked bread).
If you buy the shrimp raw you will need to thaw in cool water and then drop into a pot of boiling water for 5ish minutes until the shrimp turn pink. Peel the shrimp and skewer onto small wooden skewers. I put 8 jumbo shrimp per wooden skewer. Put the skewers in a shallow dish and drizzle the garlic expressions dressing over the shrimp to thoroughly coat. Grill the shrimp on the grill for a few minutes each side until seared. Wallha! Ready to eat!
For the Veggie side dish: Put all ingredients into a hot pan with a tablespoon of olive oil. Cook till crisp tender. Drizzle a little of the garlic expressions dressing over the veggies and if you want a garlicy kick cut up a few of the garlic cloves from the bottom of the garlic expressions bottle (I used the skewer to retrieve the whole garlic cloves from the bottle). Cook until crisp tender. Serve as a side dish to the grilled shrimp kebab.
