Cilantro-Lime Shrimp and Plum Kebabs Recipe

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil or toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 raw shrimp (8-12 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 3 jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded and quartered lengthwise
  • 2 plums, pitted and cut into sixths
  • 4 (10 inch) wooden skewers
  1. Whisk oil, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice and salt in a large bowl. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the mixture in a small bowl to use as dressing. Add shrimp, jalapenos and plums to the remaining marinade; toss to coat.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  3. Make 4 kebabs, alternating shrimp, jalapenos and plums evenly among the skewers. (Discard the marinade.) Grill the kebabs, turning once, until the shrimp are cooked through, about 8 minutes total. Drizzle with the reserved dressing.
