    For ultimate flavor, I recommend making these from fresh shrimp. This lemony pesto is also good with chicken, fish or scallops.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a food processor, pulse the nuts with the basil leaves, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and 6 tablespoons of the olive oil until combined. Add the parmesan cheese and pulse until smooth, scraping sides if necessary. Scrap the pesto into a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Place the shrimp in the bowl with the pesto and toss to cover shrimp; set aside. Note: Don't marinate for more than 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      Light a grill or preheat a cast-iron grill pan and brush with oil. Thread shrimp on each skewer. Grill shrimp over a medium-hot fire until opaque and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Serve the shrimp hot.
