Shrimp Kebabs

Shrimp Kebabs Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner
Grilling takes this fast shrimp appetizer from simple to super. For an authentic Italian presentation, thread the shrimp on sturdy rosemary sprigs before grilling. If you can't find fresh rosemary sprigs, thread shrimp onto wooden skewers (soak skewers in water for 30 minutes first).
