Skewer Ingredients:
1-pound Large Raw Shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 medium size zucchini, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
2 whole Red Bell Peppers, seeded and cut into 1 1/2-inch squares
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
Green Onion, chopped for garnish

Always soak your wood skewers before grilling. 30 minutes minimum, it helps keep the skewers from getting too scorched during the grilling process. The key to kebabs is keeping everything relatively the same size. Veggies should be sliced into the same size cubes.

1. Preheat your grill to medium high heat.
2. Soak your skewers for a minimum of 30 minutes in water.
3. Thread your skewers alternating shrimp, zucchini, and red bell pepper slices. Drizzle with olive oil and season with Cajun seasoning.
4. Grill skewers over direct heat until well seared on all sides, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer skewers to a serving platter and garnish with chopped green onions.

Serve immediately and enjoy! Serve these skewers on top of a mixed green salad for the perfect Summer dinner.
