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!

What You'll Need:
  • 8 skewers
  • 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
What To Do:
  1. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 20 minutes. Coat a broiler pan or rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
     
  2. Preheat the broiler. Place 5 shrimp onto each skewer and place on the broiler pan.
     
  3. 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.
     
  4. 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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I fixed this recipe during Lent and must say it was wonderful. I could only find peaches in juice but they were very good. I finished the salsa several days later as a salad and it was even better for having sat for those extra days. I will be making this again.
