    Rita~'s Note:

    Be sure to soak your skewers for one hour before skewering. You will have 2-3 shrimp per kabob. This can be served on a bed of couscous or orzo pasta for a (Poli' oreo' fagito') excellent meal or served without as an appetizer. This can be broiled as well.

      Yum, yum, yum, yum. I had to make chicken skewers for my daughter, who also wasn't sure about the hot melon, but the grownups got the recipe as written, and thoroughly enjoyed them! The cantaloupe is a different addition, which we will probably try grilling again. Thank you for inspiring us to get out the grill.

      We really enjoyed these. Next time, I'd probably add a little more garlic, because I really love garlic shrimp. The technique of cooking the pearl onions first was great, they were just perfectly done when the shrimp was ready. I'm a little surprised that I actually like barbequed cantaloupe, it made a nice contrast to the shrimp and veggies. Good luck in the contest.

      Delightful kabobs!! we enjoyed them very much, very refreshing with the canteloupe and a nice combination of veggies and fruit. I'm afraid it's the wrong time of year for pearl onions for us so I subed with with sweet pickled onions, they were great!! The marinade was especially good, all in all a nice change from the usual, the combination of prawns and canteloupe. Good Luck in the contest!
