Cajun Shrimp Skewers

If you like shrimp and if you like spicy, you MUST make this recipe ASAP! I made these last night and was amazed at how good they were. I cut this out of my latest Taste of Home and am so glad I did. These will definitely be a summer staple!!


Cajun Shrimp Skewers

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. onion powder

1 Tbsp. paprika

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 garlic clove, minced

1/2 tsp. dried thyme

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp. coarsely ground pepper

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 lb. uncooked jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 medium lemon, cut into wedges

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first nine ingredients. Add the jumbo shrimp; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. On metal or soaked wooden skewers, thread shrimp and lemon wedges.

Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-8 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, turning once.

Seriously, these are FANTASTIC!!!! Enjoy! :)
