Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Kebabs


  • 32 jumbo raw shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 24 round lime slices (optional)
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 tsp kosher salt (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 16 bamboo skewers soaked in water 1 hr.
  • 1 lime cut into 8 wedges


Heat the grill on medium heat and spray the grates with oil. Season the shrimp with garlic, cumin, salt and half of the cilantro in a medium bowl.

Beginning and ending with shrimp, thread the shrimp and folded lime slices onto 8 pairs of parallel skewers to make 8 kebabs total.

Grill the shrimp, turning occasionally, until shrimp is opaque throughout, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Top with remaining cilantro and fresh squeezed lime juice before serving.
