How to Make SHRIMP & VEGGIE KABOBS (GRILLED/OVEN-ROASTED)
- Insert flat stainless steel or bamboo/chopstick skewer into centers of the vegetables and through the head end and tail of shrimp, beginning with a square of bell pepper, then onion, shrimp, zucchini and cherry tomato, ensuring at least 3 shrimp per skewer; place on prepared sheetpan; repeat until all skewers are full (see photos.)
- Roast in preheated 425 degree F oven for 15 minutes; Turn kabobs over and roast for additional 12 to 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender to your preference (I usually go to 15.) If, at any point, you think they are getting too brown, reduce the heat to 400 degrees until done.
- **NOTE: If skewers are long enough, and your oven is large enough, place both ends of skewers up on the rim of the baking sheet; if not, lightly oil the foil in pan. There may be a little smoke from the vegetable juices on the foil when the oven is first opened. Sometimes, a couple of the tomatoes will fall off the skewers...oh well, they still taste good! :-) If grilling, follow steps 1 thru 5, allowing time for soaking bamboo/chopstick skewers in water for 15 to 20 minutes, if using; cook over indirect heat until veggies are tender and shrimp are pink and no longer translucent, carefully turning kabobs several times, then over direct heat just long enough to add a little char, if desired.
