Shrimp on Skewers

I made these 'Shrimp on Skewers' first time for a potluck at work. I have prepared the marinade from scratch in this recipe, shrimp got marinated over night and got grilled up to perfection and served hot at the potluck. The recipe is so simple but got raving reviews from my colleagues. So this is a keeper for my future reference, as my son's love for shrimp started growing. Here is the recipe for you, Njoy!

Shrimp - 40 ( tail off and half cooked) ( i used frozen shrimp from Costco)

Lime juice - 1/4 cup
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
Red Chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
Cilantro - 1/4 cup
Mint leaves - 1/4 cup

  1. I have used the tail off and half cooked frozen shrimp variety for this recipe. Thaw the shrimp for 30 to 60 minutes.
  2. Mix all the ingredients under marinade section in a medium bowl. Pour mixture into a ziplock cover.
  3. Add shrimp to the ziplock cover, close the zip and mix it well with marinade, so that shrimp get covered with marinade mixture all sides. Keep this ziplock in the refrigerator over night.
  4. Next day morning, take it out right before grilling, insert each shrimp on to skewers and grill these for 5 min on each side. If shrimp are drying out, brush with olive oil when they are on grill. 
  5. Serve these as it is or take them out to a plate and serve with Salsa on the side. Kids will have fun to eat shrimp right from the skewer.

Will be back with another summer recipe,
Happy Cooking and Stay tuned until next time!
