What Are Peach and Grilled Shrimp Kabobs?

Traditional shish kebab is made with various meats and then grilled hot and fast on wooden or metal skewers. These Peach and Grilled Shrimp Kabobs are a twist on the classic. We’ve combined tender shrimp, juicy peaches, and fresh asparagus for a quick dinner.

How to make shrimp kabobs.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SHRIMP

When it comes to purchasing shrimp, always choose fresh if available.  The next best will be frozen.  For this recipe you will need jumbo shrimp. There are about 16 shrimp per pound with this size.  I prefer them to be:

  1. deveined
  2. shelled
  3. and the tail on

Tip: Always use raw shrimp for this recipe – if you opt for previously cooked your shrimp will turn out tough after cooking on the grill.

How Do you Prevent Shrimp From Sticking To Your Grill?

Give your gas grill plenty of time to heat up (at least 10 minutes) or wait until your charcoal is covered with a white-hot ash before you start. You can also oil the grates of your grill.
