Grilled Shrimp Skewers


(Photo by: www.infobarrel.com [2]


I am not a huge steak eater, but what I can eat all day – everyday- is fish. I think this dish is a great appetizer; seafood lovers will devour it, and goes great with a glass of white wine.





Wooden skewers

1 pound raw, medium shrimp, shelled and deveined

2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh mint, minced

3 ounces crumbled feta cheese

Side of bread (optional)

Springs of fresh mint Vinaigrette

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

Garlic salt to taste




Toss shrimp, olive oil, and fresh mint in bowl.


Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.


Preheat grill or broiler.


Place about 5 shrimps on each skewer.


Grill or broil shrimp, about 2 minutes per side, or until pink and fully cooked.


Place on platter.


Make Vinaigrette -In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup olive oil, vinegars and garlic salt to taste.


Drizzle vinaigrette over shrimp and sprinkle with feta. You can either serve this dish with the shrimp still on the skewers or you can push the shrimp off skewers and place on a platter, then adding the vinaigrette and feta cheese.


Serve with a side of bread, I personally prefer thinly sliced French bread, and garnish with a touch of fresh mint.
