  • 1 1/2 pounds extra-large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 15 wooden skewers
  • 15 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into bite-sized squares
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced into bite-sized squares


  • In a large bowl (or resealable plastic bag), combine shrimp, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, orange juice, paprika, basil, thyme, sage, oregano, black pepper, salt and rosemary. Toss together until evenly coated. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  • While shrimp is marinating, soak the wooden skewers in water for 15 minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat.* Thread 3 shrimp, 1 cherry tomato, 1 onion slice and 1 bell pepper slice onto each wooden skewers until all 15 skewers are prepared.
  • Cook the shrimp skewers on the grill for 3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and are cooked through.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice.


*Don't have a grill? No problem! These shrimp skewers can also be roasted in a 450 degree oven for about 5 to 7 minutes, until fully cooked through.
