Shrimp and Vegetable Kebabs
Buying cleaned shrimp is appealing but more expensive. Its not hard to clean shrimp in your own kitchen. Just slide off the shell, remove the vein and rinse the shrimp under cold running water.
1 lb large shrimp, peeled, deveined
16 oz Italian salad dressing
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp hot pepper sauce
1 Tbsp lemon juice
3 small zucchini
8 small white onions, peeled
8 large fresh mushrooms
2 tomatoes, cut into wedges
Place shrimp in a shallow dish. Combine dressing, soy sauce, hot pepper sauce and lemon juice in a medium bowl; mix well. Reserve 1 2 the sauce. Pour remaining sauce over shrimp.
Preheat broiler. Soak 8 wooden skewers. Cut zucchini into 11 2-inch pieces. Drain shrimp, discarding sauce.
Alternately thread shrimp, zucchini, onions, mushrooms and tomato wedges onto presoaked skewers.
Broil kebabs, turning several times and basting with reserved sauce, for 6 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Serve immediately.
Be sure to spear the shrimp at both ends with the skewers. With the shrimp secured at each end, the kebabs can be turned easily while broiling and will cook evenly.
