Ingredients

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest

24 large shrimp , peeled and deveined

Cooking Instructions

1. Place the shrimp in a bowl and stir in the ingredients for the marinade. Marinate for 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, soak the bamboo skewers in cold water to prevent them from burning.

2. Preheat the grill to high.

3. Thread the shrimp through the side into the skewers, placing a basil leaf and a slice of bell pepper between each. (Alternate red and yellow bell peppers.) Season with salt and pepper.

4. Grill the kebabs until the shrimp are pink and the peppers are cooked, about 2 minutes per side.
