    Obag's Note:

    This is a great recipe from the July 2005 issue of Sunset Magazine. Can substitute 1 tbs of minced garlic for 2 cloves fresh garlic. Soak wooden skewers 2-3 hours prior to grilling (soaking time not included in preparation time listed in recipe).

      Um Yum! I messed up the method of the recipe as I was in an ultra hurry and didn't read the instructions. I used Maldon sea salt, skipped steps 1-3 and added the salt and sugar to the rest of the marinade ingredients. Not to worry though they tasted wonderful (not salty at all) Due to time constraints I didn't skewer them either. Everyone who had them still gave them the thumbs up. 5 stars!

      I must agree - so glad you post both this and the complimentary Summer Orzo Salad. These are such an unexpected burst of flavor for such an easy recipe! Just the type recipe I love!! We also were treated to this chef and his creations on vacation - it was a solid two thumbs up (more than 5*'s) from everyone on the vacation. THIS is the skewer recipe you have been waiting for! Thanks for posting, Obag!

      O - I am so excited this recipe has been posted. I would give it more than 5 stars! I had the pleasure of this chef actually make this for my family while on vacation. The Shrimp was plump and juicy and the flavors were perfectly balanced. I can't wait to make this again. It's one of my new Favorite Shrimp Dishes. Thanks for posting this Simple but Delicious and impressive recipe. ~V
