Spicy Shrimp Kabobs with Tomatoes & Herbs
Serves 2

Grilling shrimp couldn't be simpler! Raise the bar for patio dining with these scrumptious, skewered shrimp. The marinade assembles quickly with a few pulses in a mini food processor, and the tender shrimp marinate for a quick 30 minutes. We recommend using fresh shrimp, but frozen shrimp would also work well for this recipe.

1 pound fresh jumbo shrimp (21-25 per pound), peeled and de-veined
1 lemon, sliced in wedges
1 (10 oz) container of cherry tomatoes

Marinade Ingredients:
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 Serrano pepper, seeds removed, halved
1/2 large shallot, roughly chopped
2 large cloves garlic, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

1. Blend all of the marinade ingredients together in a small food processor; blend until combined.

2. Prepare the shrimp by removing the outer shell, deveining, and rinsing. Drain and pat dry. (If you're using frozen shrimp, remove from the freezer and place in a colander. Run cold water over the shrimp until they are thawed. Pat dry.)

3. Place the shrimp in a small bowl, and pour the marinade over the shrimp. Toss lightly so that the marinade reaches all surfaces, Cover, and refrigerate marinating for 30 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes.

5. Skewer the marinated shrimp, alternating with cherry tomatoes. Add a lemon wedge to the end of each kabob.

6. Prepare the grill until very hot. Make sure that the grilling grate is clean and oiled. Grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until the shrimp is just cooked and turns opaque.
