Shrimp and apples are marinated in a sweet and spicy sauce, then skewered and grilled. Serve over white rice, noodles, or a mixed green salad.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 2 Gala apples, cored and cut into eighths
  • 16 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

Directions:

Whisk together the honey, olive oil, basil, strawberry jam, red pepper flakes, garlic, red wine vinegar, lemon juice and white sugar in a small bowl. Place the apples and shrimp into a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the shrimp and apples, seal the bag, and shake to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.

Thread the shrimp and apples alternately on 4 metal or soaked wooden skewers. Discard the remaining marinade.

Cook the skewers on the preheated grill until the shrimp are opaque, about 5 minutes per side.
