Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup mushrooms
  • 1/4 Cup onions
  • 1/4 Cup peppers
  • 1/4 Cup zucchini
  • 1/4 Cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 Cup fresh pineapple
  • 1 Pound large, uncooked frozen shrimp
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 2 Teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 Teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 3 rosemary sprigs
  • 1 Dash of truffle oil
  • 1 Dash of Parmigiano-Reggiano

Directions

Quarter vegetables and fruit (such as mushrooms, onions, peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and fresh pineapple).  Heat your grill to medium-high heat.  Brush vegetables, fruit, and shrimp with a combination of olive oil, garlic, kosher salt, cracked black pepper, smoked paprika, dried oregano, and lemon juice. 

Skewer the vegetables, fruit, and shrimp and leave a little space between the food so it cooks evenly and doesn’t steam.  If you want to get fancy, strip the bottom 2/3 of a rosemary sprig and use those as skewers. 

Grill about 2-3 minutes per side or until shrimp are pink with grill marks.

We love to serve these over polenta drizzled with truffle oil and freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Shrimp Shopping Tip
