You’ll love this recipe because it’s a snap to put together, takes almost no prep, and gives you consistent results every single time. These have been a real hit for most of the spring/summer season thus far. So much that this is the first time there were any leftovers to be photographed. These skewers usually don’t stand a chance when they come off the grill, it’s like a bunch of baby birds lined up for feeding time! I defended a few of them the other day and quickly ‘hid’ them in the fridge for photographing later.
Nothing better than the grill…nothing better than some cilantro and lime marinated chicken and shrimp! Make these the night before your big celebration or Sunday Funday and they’ll be ready to skewer and cook when you are. No fuss. With only five ingredients and minimal prep work, you can enjoy your life for those few extra minutes.
15 min. prep + marinade time
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 2 tablespoons garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 lbs. of meat
- Put all ingredients (except meat) into the food processor and pulse until minced well.
- Pour over meat and seal tight (I use plastic bags and separate the meat if I’m using two kinds).
- Marinate at least 30 minutes or overnight. Turn/mix the bags in the fridge to keep things even.
- Skewer meat on pre-soaked skewers and grill to perfection!
