How to Make It

Step 1

Combine pesto, lemon juice, and shrimp; toss. Let stand 5 minutes. Thread shrimp and red and yellow bell pepper alternately onto skewers. Sprinkle evenly with salt. Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 7 minutes, turning skewers occasionally for an even char.

Step 2

Note: If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes before grilling.

I didn't bother with the skewers and instead put the ingredients on a grill pan in our Traeger.  Served with some pesto pasta on the side.  Will definitely make again.  So quick and easy.

I made this using imitation crab sticks instead of shrimp and it was delicious! I will definitely be making this again. I had some frozen pesto on hand which I had made awhile back. It made this recipe a breeze.
