We are only hours away and you have plenty of time to make these delicious kabobs. You can certainly add any other vegetables or fruit you would like to these. I use Italian sausage because I love the spice, but pork sausage is great too.
1 lb Italian cooked sausage cut into 16 pieces
16 large raw shrimp cleaned and deveined
1 sweet pepper (any color, red, orange yellow) cut into 16 pieces
2 shallots cut into 16 slices
1 zucchini in 16 pieces
1/2 cup olive oil
4 tbl sherry vinegar
4 garlic cloves crushed
2 tsp smoked paprika (or regular paprika)
1 tsp cumin
pinch red pepper flake
16 sage leaves
Whisk oil, vinegar, garlic, paprika and cumin in a bowl. Add sausage and shrimp and marinade at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
Drain and reserve marinade. Skewer shallot, shrimp, sage, sausage, pepper and zucchini on skewer...repeat. Season with salt and pepper.
Grill on medium- high basting frequently with reserved marinade. Cook time about 6-8 minutes until shrimp cooked through. Serve alone as an appetizer or with a side of rice for dinner.
It's The Playoffs!
