Grilled Shrimp Kabobs

"These are very easy to make and great as an appetizer or served with salad or a rice dish for a backyard BBQ! I like to add Essence or Creole Seasoning and Poblano or Jalapeno Pepper to the skewers to give them a little extra Zing!"

I was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado. I moved to Corpus Christi, Texas in 1998. I enjoy camping, sewing and gardening. My husband and I love to cook. We are always trying new recipes and adding to old ones. We BBQ every weekend and always have a crowd of friends over to taste our creations! Usually we are watching Nascar and/or football while we BBQ! I am a Denver Bronco Fan, but I also like the Houston Texans.
