Shrimp & Plum Kebabs

Recipe: Shrimp & Plum Kebobs

Toss quick-cooking shrimp, juicy summertime plums and zesty jalapeños with a simple cilantro-lime marinade for a deluxe meal in minutes. If you like, use peaches or nectarines in place of the plums and red or green bell peppers for the jalapeños.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, or toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lbs large raw shrimp, (12 per pound down to 24 per pound work well), peeled and deveined
  • 3 jalapeño peppers seeded and quartered lengthwise or 1 green bell pepper, stemmed, seeded and cut into 1 1/2″ squares
  • 2 plums, pitted and cut into sixths

Instructions

  1. Whisk oil, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice and salt in a large bowl. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the mixture in a small bowl to use as dressing. Add shrimp, jalapeños and plums to the remaining marinade; toss to coat.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  3. Make 4 kebobs, alternating shrimp, pepper and plums evenly among four 10-inch skewers. (Discard the marinade.) Grill the kebabs, turning once, until the shrimp are cooked through, about 8 minutes total. Drizzle with the reserved dressing.
