  • 1 red bell pepper, quartered

  • 1 lemon
  • 5-6 wooden skewers

Instructions

  1. If using wooden skewers, soak 30 minutes prior to putting on the grill so they don’t burn.
  2. Heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix ingredients for the Cajun Rub. Add shrimp and toss with hands, thoroughly coating each shrimp.
  4. Thread shrimp on their own skewers (6 per skewer), and veggies on their own skewers.
  5. Lightly coat skewers with nonstick cooking spray. Place veggies on hot grill. Cook for a total of 12 minutes, flipping halfway. Add shrimp halfway through cooking veggies (6 minutes in), flip over shrimp after 3 minutes. Squeeze juice from one lemon over the tops of the kabobs.
