There’s nothing like a summer barbecue with family and friends to celebrate the season.

For a quick, easy, and healthy meal, add a green salad and fresh corn on the cob and you’re good to go.

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled

  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

  • 2 tsp. olive oil

  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, cleaned and chopped

  • 16 large shrimp, uncooked, deveined

  • 10 medium cherry tomatoes, rinsed and dried

  • 10 small white-button mushrooms, wiped clean and stems removed

Directions

In a glass measuring cup, squeeze limes, yielding ¼ cup of juice. Add the garlic, pepper, olive oil, and cilantro and stir. Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and pour the cilantro lime marinade over the shrimp. Let the shrimp marinate for 10 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator. Alternate cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, and shrimp on four skewers. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Grill the skewers for three to four minutes on each side until the shrimp are just cooked through.
