Spicy Shrimp Kabobs

Let’s start this week out talking about what’s really important… Britney Spears. Did anyone else see her performance on the 2016 Billboard Awards? My jaw hit the floor. Not just because I heard Toxic for the first time since I was teenager, but her body. She has now given me ‘Motivation Monday’ goals. She looks strong and healthy, and she’s still and will always be pop-royalty.

Ok well you’re probably reading this like “listen Carey, I clicked this post to find out your recipe for Spicy Shrimp Kabobs – I don’t want to hear about Britney.” Totally respectable, so let’s cut to the chase. This is a easy summer recipe to take advantage of the grill.

Spicy Shrimp Kabobs

4 Kabobs – Cook time 10 minutes


  • 12 medium shrimp, de-veined and unshelled
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 poblano pepper
  • 2 mushrooms
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper



  1. An hour before grill time, wash the shrimp. Mix all the seasonings with the shrimp, and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator.
  2. Cut the peppers, onion, and zucchini into chunks – and slice the mushrooms. Take your kabob stick and alternate putting the vegetables and shrimp on the kabob stick. This recipe allows for 3 shrimp to be on each stick.
  3. Turn on your grill. Once hot, take aluminum foil and create a plate, and place it on the grill. Put the kabobs on the foil, and close your grill. Flip your kabobs occasionally, so nothing burns. Cook for 10 minutes. Serve Warm.
