Island Shrimp Skewers
Few things are tastier, and easier, in the summer than kabobs. But quite often, good-for-you seafood items are forgotten and left off the menu! Replace heavier meat kabobs with these Island Shrimp Skewers. The peach salsa takes them over the top!
1 pound medium-sized shrimp (40-count), peeled and deveined with tails left on
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups canned no-sugar-added peaches, drained
1/2 a small green bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 20 minutes. Coat a broiler pan or rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Preheat the broiler. Place 5 shrimp onto each skewer and place on the broiler pan.
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, honey, red pepper, black pepper, and ginger; mix well. Remove 2 tablespoons of the mixture to a medium bowl and set aside. Brush both sides of the skewered shrimp with the remaining mixture and broil for 4 to 5 minutes, or until pink.
Meanwhile, add the remaining ingredients to the reserved mixture; mix well to make a peach salsa. Spread the salsa over 4 serving plates and top each with 2 shrimp skewers. Serve immediately.
