Since posting my collard greens recipe many moons ago, I have had many more requests for recipes. So here is one that I made when David and I were in Bristol. Let me tell you...this won over David's Dad completely.
Brandon's Suki Suki Now Grilled Shrimp Kabobs
One pound fresh shrimp Two red bell peppers One package mushrooms One red onion Two large green peppers Two cups soy sauce Half cup honey One table spoon crushed red pepper flakes One teaspoon garlic powder One orange Six to Ten metal skewers Olive oil
First you want to pour the honey into a microwave safe bowl. Add the soy sauce. Microwave the soy sauce and honey for 30 seconds on high. Pull out the mixture and stir thoroughly. Microwaving the honey makes it liquid and easy to mix. Add the crushed red pepper and garlic powder. Cut orange in half and squeeze both halves into the honey and soy sauce marinade. Stir again. Then add the shrimp to the mixture, cover, and let sit for four hours. You can marinate the shrimp for a shorter period of time, but the longer you let them soak the better they will taste.
Chop your bell peppers, mushrooms and onions into roastable sizes. Then, create your skewers by adding a shrimp followed by one of each vegetable including the onion, followed by shrimp and repeat until skewer is full. Brush each kabab with a light layer of olive oil.
Roast the skewers over a charcoal grill until the shrimp turn bright orange. Salt. Serve. Enjoy.
I am telling you...these grilled skewers will make your loved one take off their panties and win the hearts of your inlaws.
Remember to always always always use uncooked shrimp. If you live near a Trader Joe's, they have great large uncooked shrimp, frozen, for around $7.99. The total price for this meal will run you $15 and will make six to ten skewers depending on how you put them together and the size of your skewers.
