There’s nothing like a summer barbecue with family and friends to celebrate the season.

For a quick, easy, and healthy meal, add a green salad and fresh corn on the cob and you’re good to go.

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, cleaned and chopped
  • 16 large shrimp, uncooked, deveined
  • 10 medium cherry tomatoes, rinsed and dried
  • 10 small white-button mushrooms, wiped clean and stems removed

Directions

In a glass measuring cup, squeeze limes, yielding ¼ cup of juice. Add the garlic, pepper, olive oil, and cilantro and stir. Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and pour the cilantro lime marinade over the shrimp. Let the shrimp marinate for 10 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Alternate cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and shrimp on 4 skewers. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grill the skewers for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until the shrimp are just cooked through.
