      The very best shrimp kabobs that we ever ate. This recipe is in my top ten list most definately. Can't wait to wow everybody at the next family cookout. Here's how I tweeked the recipe abit: Added a small amount of pinapple juice, and a little honey to the marinade and i used pineapple chunks on the kabobs in addition to what the recipe called for. When I grilled the kabobs the coals were starting to cool down a bit and I cooked the kabobs for about 25 min. on the cooler grill. The veggies were tender crisp and perfect. Oh I spritz my kabobs with parkay no calorie butter spray 5 min. before I took the kabobs off the grill, nice final touch. Happy grilling everyone!!!!

      This was so easy and so good. I made a number of changes - used Ken's Italian dressing instead of oil with the dressing mix, and added a heavy dose of Hot Shot. Instead of skewering I grilled the veggies and shrimp on a grill rack. Did zucchini, red onion and orange bell pepper first since they take longer to cook. Then did the shrimp on the rack for about 5 minutes. Served with rice pilaf. Three people devoured this last night so no leftovers - rats!!! Thanks for a great summer meal we all enjoyed.
