Shrimp & Plum Kebabs

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.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoon canola oil, or toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 3 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 raw shrimp, (8-12 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 3 jalapeño peppers, stemmed, seeded and quartered lengthwise
  • 2 plums, pitted and cut into sixths

Cooking Directions

Step 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.

Step 2

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Step 3

Make 4 kebabs, alternating shrimp, jalapeños 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.
