This recipe is from www.kitchenmixes.com. It is a great substitute for the boxed onion soup mix. It equals one packet or about 1-1/4 ounces. You can add garlic powder or other seasonings if you wish. It also makes a great gift for cooks. Make up some packets of onion soup mix, add a soup ladel, soup bowls, soup spoons, recipes, and some non-perishable ingredients. Place in a basket or pretty box wrapped in a tea towel.
Use this recipe as a template for other shrimp skewers. If you don't have honey mustard, stir a little honey into Dijon. Limes would also work well instead of lemons. And if you're finding your home-grown chives or parsley getting out of hand, substitute them for the basil.
These need to marinate for 45 minutes before cooking.

We make this at least once a month. I think it is originally from long, long ago Bon Apetit magazine, I clipped out the recipe and have it pasted in a cooking scrap-book. Prep time does NOT include peeling and deveining the shrimp as many stores now sell shrimp all cleaned up for you and ready to prepare! Prep time DOES include time for marinating. Keep in mind, many Creole and Cajun Seasonings can be salty, so you may want to adjust for that in regards to the recipe in general or the use of soy sauce!
An adaptation from The Italian-American Cookbook. The smaller the shrimp the longer the prep time! I learned that the hard way years ago when I was having guest for dinner and they arrived long before I was finished peeling and deveining the shrimp.
Microwave recipes are my weakness since I got my convection oven. They are wonderfully easy and that is a plus. This is delicious and the use of canned tomatoes and frozen shrimp make this inexpensive as well. Great for company too!
