Spicy Grilled Shrimp Kebabs with Avocado and Papaya Salad

Spicy Grilled Shrimp Kebabs with Avocado and Papaya Salad Recipe
Oxmoor House
We loved the way the spicy kick from the shrimp mellowed with each bite of sweet papaya and cool, creamy avocado—so much, in fact, that we gave this dish our highest rating. To cut down on prep time, we recommend using metal skewers. If you prefer to use wooden ones, be sure to soak them in water 30 minutes before grilling.


4 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and about 2/3 cup salad)
