Grilled Shrimp and Pepper Kabobs

This post is sponsored by Soapbox Influence. All opinions are my own. #WalmartGrillMates

Spring has finally arrived here in Maine! I am so happy that the weather is warming up. It means we can start grilling our favorite foods outside more often like these Grilled Shrimp and Pepper Kabobs.

I used McCormick Grill Mates Garlic Herb and Wine Marinade Mix to marinate the shrimp before preparing the kabobs. I love the ease of having a prepared marinade mix that can be made in minutes. There are several varieties of the Grill Mates Marinade Mixes available at Walmart including Mesquite and Brown Sugar Bourbon. The bold and spicy flavors are so tasty on grilled seafood, meat and vegetables! You can also find McCormick seasonings online at: https://bit.ly/WalmartGrillMates 

What do I need to make the Grilled Shrimp and Pepper Kabobs?

This recipe is so simple to make and there are just a few ingredients that you will need:

  • McCormick Grill Mates® Garlic, Herb and Wine Marinade Mix
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Shrimp
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Orange Bell Pepper
  • Yellow Bell Pepper
  • Red Onion

How do I make the Shrimp Kabobs?

There are just a few simple steps to make this tasty recipe!

Step 1: First make the marinade. All you will need for this step is one package of McCormick Grill Mates Garlic Herb and Wine Marinade Mix, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup of water. In a small bowl, whisk these ingredients together until well combined and set aside. *Reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade for basting the shrimp kabobs.

 

Step 2: Peel and devein 2 pounds of large shrimp, then rinse the shrimp and pat dry with paper towels. Place the shrimp in a large plastic bag and pour the garlic herb and wine marinade over the shrimp. Place the shrimp in the refrigerator and marinate for 30 minutes. 

Step 3: While the shrimp are marinating, chop up the bell peppers and onions into 3/4 pieces.

 

Step 4:  Time to make the kabobs! Thread one shrimp, 1 piece of chopped bell pepper, 2 pieces of red onion, then 1 more piece of chopped bell pepper onto a skewer. Continue to repeat in this order until skewer is full. I like to make them colorful, so I alternate bell pepper colors, but that is just preference. 

 

Step 5: Warm up grill to medium high heat (around 400 degrees). Place shrimp on the grill and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side or until shrimp turn pink, and vegetables are tender-crisp, turning occasionally. Baste with reserved marinade halfway through cooking. 

Step 6: Remove from heat and enjoy! I like to serve the kabobs over a bed of white rice or on top of pasta. However, they make a flavorful meal all by themselves!
