Red Lobster Grilled Shrimp Kabobs
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
36 shrimp, peeled and deveined with tail on
Salt and pepper
Combine melted butter and garlic; reserve.
Peel the onion and cut from top to bottom. Place cut side down and
cut each half into six wedges (widest part of the onion should be
1/2"). Break wedges apart so two or three layers of onion stay
together. Steam the onions approximately 3 minutes to soften
Remove the core from the tomato. Slice the tomato in half from top
to bottom. Place cut side down and cut each half into three wedges.
Remove the pulp and seeds from each wedge.
Cut zucchini into 1/2 slices. Cut small slices (1 1/2-inch diameter
or less) into two pieces; cut large slices (over 1 1/2-inch
diameter) into three pieces lengthwise (do not cut into wedges).
Thread items onto skewer in this order, three shrimp (about 1/2 from
the thick end), onion wedge, zucchini, tomato, three shrimp, onion
wedge, zucchini, tomato, three shrimp.
Brush skewers with butter mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Refrigerate until ready to cook.
Lightly brush charcoal grill rack with oil, place skewer on grill
rack and cook over medium coals until shrimp are done and vegetables
cooked, about 8 - 10 minutes. Turn once or twice while cooking to
prevent burning. Or place on broiler pan. Broil about 4 inches from
source of heat for 8 minutes, turning once while cooking.
Chef's Tip: Optional Harpoon (Kabob) ingredients: mushroom caps,
cherry tomatoes, yellow squash pieces, pineapple chunks, olives, or
use your imagination.
