Sunday Slow Cooking ~ Outside at the Grill

I'm grilling with my friends from Slow Travel . I picked our secret ingredient for this week . . . It is Rosemary. It has been growing like crazy in these hot summer days.
This is a great 'by the pool' appetizer. As soon as you pull them off the grill they are eaten~Rosemary Shrimp Appetizers
2 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs agave nectar
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 lb large shrimp
one bunch grapes
Fresh rosemary In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, oil, agave, lime juice and black pepper. Marinate the peeled shrimp, grapes in this mixture for 30-45 minutes.
Peel the leaves off the bottoms of the rosemary (throw into the marinade) Soak your rosemary skewers in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes. (they won't be a likely to catch fire)
While the grill is heating . . . thread the shrimp and grapes onto the skewers so the shrimp will curl around them.
Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 1 minute on each side, or until the shrimp turn pink and curl around the grapes. Brush with the remaining marinade. Perfect for a poolside snack~

Y'all Enjoy!

God bless you for posting this recipe! I have a rosemary plant in my backyard that has grown into a hedge - I am at a loss for what to do with it all! I will probably be enjoying these delicious shrimp skewers a few times this week paired with a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc - thanks for sharing!

Those look wonderful! I feel guilty for not using my rosemary as much as I should!

Mercy, child, pinch me~~~

I have the grapes,

Even the rosemary, now all I need is the soy and patience to wait for these...thanks for sharing

I adore shrimp, but I've never used grapes with them. Well, why not. And rosemary too? Rosemary just might be my very favorite herb. Yes, this is going to be very, very good.
