I made this recipe over the weekend, inspired by a house full of people who were "sick of everything." Each and every suggestion I threw out was greeted by a shrug of the shoulders or emotionless nod. Before resorting to take-out or telling everyone to fend for themselves, I got some inspiration to make Cajun shrimp kabobs, something we hadn’t had before and something I knew everyone would love. The spice rub is smoky and spicy, which pairs great with the sweetness of the shrimp. Plus they only take 10 minutes and are under 200 calories. Win-win.

1

Mix together all of the spices.

2

Thread the shrimp onto skewers. Brush with oil. Sprinkle the spice mixture onto the skewers on both sides. It’s fine if there is a little extra spice rub leftover. (Note: If using wood skewers, make sure to soak them in water for 30 minutes beforehand so they don’t catch on fire.)

3

Preheat the grill (or broiler) at medium heat.

4

Place the kabobs directly on the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until pink. For the broiler, place 6 inches from broiler and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until pink and cooked through.
