Marinated Pinchos de Camarón (Shrimp Skewers) 

If you’re looking for a simple seafood recipe that will impress, try these tasty pinchos de camarón (shrimp skewers). Perfect on the grill, they are fairly inexpensive, easy to make and look beautiful.


1 lb. shrimp, medium sized, peeled, deveined and tail on (frozen is fine, just run under cold water to defrost)
1 medium red onion
1/2 lb. cherry tomatoes
1 orange bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 bottle (19 oz.) WORLD HARBORS Jamaican Style Jerk Marinade, divided
15-20 skewers


In a bowl, place the shrimp and add half a bottle of the Jerk Marinade. Toss until all the shrimp are coated with the marinade. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

While the shrimp are marinating, cut the onion and bell peppers into nice chunks and set aside.

If you are using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least 10 minutes.

Once the shrimp are ready, discard the marinade and start assembling your skewers, inserting cherry tomatoes, shrimp, onions and peppers one by one onto each skewer. Include at least three shrimp per skewer.

Fire up the grill to medium heat and place the prepared skewers directly on the grill, but try to avoid a direct flame. Cook for 5 minutes--or until done--on each side. You know a shrimp is done when it starts turning pink. Allow the cherry tomatoes to burst open so they become even more flavorful.

Remove the skewers from the grill. You can either serve them as kebabs or remove the skewers and place the shrimp and veggies in a serving plate. Pour the remaining Jerk Marinade in a small bowl to be used for dipping.
