Grilled Gremolata Shrimp Skewers

Grilled Gremolata Shrimp Skewers

Grilled Gremolata Shrimp Skewers are just one of the yummy recipes that can be made with a homemade batch of citrus gremolata!

Gremolata reminds me of pesto, only using fresh parsley in place of basil.

And with lots of fresh citrus flavors to make a bright sauce that pairs perfectly with seafood 🙂

This makes a good size batch, so I used half to make Catfish with Gremolata… and froze the other half to use when making these shrimp kabobs.

How to make Grilled Gremolata Shrimp Kabobs

First cut most of the stems off a bunch of fresh parsley.

And put it in a food processor.

Then add some zest from each a lemon, lime, and orange.

I used my microplane grater to get about 1/2 tablespoon of zest from each.

Then add in a tablespoon or two of juice from each the lemon, lime, and orange.

Along with garlic, olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.

Just blend in the food processor until smooth.

shrimp for the kabobs

This is a pound and a half of jumbo shrimp that has been peeled and deveined.

Toss the shrimp with a few spoonfuls of the gremolata.

And let this marinate no longer than 5 to 10 minutes.

Then thread the shrimp onto kabob skewers.

Mine are made of wood so I soaked them in water to prevent burning on the grill.

Once the skewers are done, season with just a bit more kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.

Next preheat the grill to medium heat for a few minutes.

Then grill the kabob skewers for 5 minutes total, flipping halfway through.

I grilled some asparagus and a baked potato for a complete meal on the grill 🙂

The potato was cooked, just added some fun grill marks and charbroiled flavor.

And the asparagus was just tossed with olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.
