Shrimp Kabobs

Today is Foodie Friday! It is hosted by Designs by Gollum. Be sure to go by and see all of the participants of this most Tasty day of the week!
This is a recipe perfect for a backyard cookout. This one is light and one that my husband loves. It is for shrimp kabob's. I think I found the recipe off of the food network years ago.

40 (13 to 15 count size) shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 teaspoons kosher salt
5 tablespoons Irvine Spices Cajun Blackening Spice
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 red bell peppers
2 yellow bell peppers
2 white onions

8 long wooden skewers, soaked in water for about a half hour so they will not burn on the grill.

Heat your grill. In a mixing bowl, combine shrimp with salt, blackening seasoning and lemon juice. Set aside. Cut red peppers, yellow peppers and onions into 2-inch cubes and place on skewer in this order: red pepper, shrimp, red onion, shrimp, green pepper, shrimp, etc. Grill on all sides, brushing with marinade as it cooks. Let vegetables caramelize. Lightly blacken shrimp, being careful not to burn. It will probably grill for about 10 minutes ,depending on your grill temperature, which you do not want to high. Serve immediately.

My husband loves prawns and such but I don't eat shellfish. I will have to pass this on to him.
I love your banner. The photograph really does it all justice. I think your grandfather must have been one heck of a host.
