Foodie Friday- Lime Cilantro Shrimp Kabobs

We live in Hawaii and its hard to not eat seafood or fish. I have recently started embracing all the fresh ingredients we can get. However, for this recipe I cheated and bought frozen shrimp, but buy fresh! You can taste a difference.

I was able to whip up this recipe while Hubs was giving the spawn a shower. Super easy and fast! All I had to do was buy the shrimp and the rest I had in my cabinet.

Ingredients
Shrimp
Kabob skewers
Salt
Garlic (fresh or powder)
Cilantro (fresh or dried
Ground cumin
Limes

Make sure you soak the kabobs in water prior to loading them up.

I defrosted the shrimp then added the spices. It was mainly 1 and 1/4 of each. I would have used fresh cilantro if I had it on hand (I didn’t) and I used minced garlic I had in the fridge. I mixed it all and just made sure it had a good coating all over. I sliced the limes into thin slices that will be later used on the kabobs.

Next I skewed the shrimp and lime. For what I had on hand it ended up being three shrimp and three lime slices (folded in half) on each kabob. Make sure you start and end with the shrimp. It will help hold the limes on.

Time to cook! Over a medium heat grill throw them on for about 1-2 minutes on each side. They will be done when they are opaque. Remember you can eat shrimp raw, so it’s ok if it’s not cooked though out. You just don’t want to over cook.
