Prep Time: 15 minutes
Refrigerate: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
1 package McCormick® Grill Mates® Baja Citrus Marinade
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons water
2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
5 cups assorted fresh vegetable pieces, such as yellow squash, zucchini and red bell pepper
MIX Marinade Mix, oil, vinegar and water in small bowl. Place shrimp and vegetables in 2 separate large resealable plastic bags. Pour 1/2 of the marinade into each bag; turn to coat well.
REFRIGERATE 15 minutes. Remove shrimp and vegetables from marinade. Discard shrimp marinade; reserve vegetable marinade. Alternately thread shrimp and vegetables onto skewers.
GRILL over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, turning frequently and basting with reserved vegetable marinade.
Test Kitchen Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with shrimp and vegetables. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.
