By ali eletre

  • Ingredients:

  • 36 fresh or frozen raw, large shrimp peeled and deveined

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces

  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces

  • 1 medium red onion, quartered and separated

  • Roasted garlic marinade

  • 2 medium garlic bulbs

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 cup orange juice

  • 1/2 cup spicy honey mustard

  • 4 tablespoons honey

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  1. Directions:

  2. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cut off the top of the unpeeled garlic bulbs, just enough to expose the individual cloves. Place garlic in a small baking dish and drizzle with oil. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Cool. Squeeze garlic cloves out of the skin. Place all marinade ingredients into a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Pour 1/2-cup marinade into a separate container and refrigerate until serving.

  3. Place red and yellow bell pepper, onion and shrimp in a shallow baking dish, cover with marinade and refrigerate at least 2 hours.

  4. Spray grill rack with nonstick cooking spray and heat grill to medium heat. Alternate threading shrimp and vegetables onto 12 metal skewers, leaving a little space between each. If using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for 30 minutes before threading with food. Discard remaining marinade. Grill uncovered 3-5 minutes per side or until shrimp is pink and firm. Place kabobs on a serving tray and drizzle with the 1/2-cup reserved marinade.
