Grilled Green Shrimp Skewers
1 pound large, raw shrimp peeled and deveined
2 scallions roughly chopped
1/3 cup cilantro
1 clove garlic
1/3 cup olive oil
juice of 1 lime
1/2 teaspoon salt
a few grinds of black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper powder- optional
metal or bamboo skewers- if using bamboo skewers soak them for 20 minutes before using.
1. Process the scallions, cilantro, garlic, olive oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper in a blender until smooth.
2. Pour the the marinade over the shrimp, cover, and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
3. While the grill is heating, skewer the shrimp. Cook the shrimp about 2 minutes per side or until the shrimp becomes pink and is no longer translucent.
Serve the shrimp skewers with Pineapple Salsa and grilled avocado.
To make the grilled avocado simply slice a ripe avocado in half and remove the pit. Squeeze some lime juice over the avocado halves then simply gill them over the heated grill for a couple of minutes or until they are slightly browned and warmed throughout.
