This made a lovely main dish salad for a summer meal. I cooked the shrimp on a foreman grill to make things even easier. The only changes I made were to sub purple onion on the skewers and thinly slice the jicamia and mix into the greens. (I prefer it raw.) I think next time I might garnish with mandrian oranges to better reflect the orange in the marinade. It is spicy, but the heat level was okay for us. Thanks Paula!

Good and easy to prepare and great for a light supper. I used a bit more of the shrimp and some of the other ingredients making 10 skewers which we all enjoyed. Next time I will decrease the amout of red pepper just a bit though. Thanks for sharing!
