Total time 45 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 6 shrimp)
These skewers are a simple, quick, and fresh-tasting entrée. Shrimp cook fast, making them great for the broiler—but watch the time and keep an eye on them so they don't overcook and dry out.

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 10 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth. Place in a bowl; add shrimp, tossing to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Preheat broiler to high.

  3. Remove shrimp from marinade; thread 6 shrimp onto each of 4 (8-inch) wooden skewers. Place skewers on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; top with any remaining marinade. Broil 5 inches from heat for 2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done.
