Dressed to Grill: Healthy/Delicious Summer Grilling Tips and Recipes

On the grill today: Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Skewers

As I mentioned with all my other seafood recipes, I don’t think too hard about occasional eating of called “scavengers”, i.e. crab, lobster, and shrimp, since I have an army of nutrients in my diet, such as chlorella to remove mercury, heavy metals, and other toxins from the body, as well as papaya enzymes to break down animal protein, and a host of others in the
"Eat Smart" and "Top Ten Lists" sections of the blog.

Anyhoo, 4th of July, 2013!!!, summer is full throttle. I’m still salivating over the million dollar renovation right in front of my rinky-dinky studio apartment here in Seattle, in the huge Mezzanine right outside my siding door. They just moved a Kenmore gas grill up here. I’m ready to get down!!!!

Perfect time for another adventure in “Dressed to Grill”, especially because I found some more cool shots of outdoor kitchens. Here is a recipe for Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Skewers.

Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Skewers

32 jumbo raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 cloves organic garlic, crushed
24 slices (about 3) large organic limes limes, very thinly sliced into rounds (optional)
coconut oil for the grill grates
1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt (or alternately Celtic Sea Salt)
1 1/2 tsp ground organic cumin
1/4 cup chopped fresh organic cilantro, divided
16 bamboo skewers soaked in water 1 hour
1 organic lime cut into 8 wedges


Heat the grill on medium heat and use brush to wipe grates with Coconut Oil. Season the shrimp with garlic, cumin, salt and half of the cilantro in a medium bowl.

Beginning and ending with shrimp, thread the shrimp and folded lime slices onto 8 pairs of parallel skewers to make 8 kebabs total.

Grill the shrimp, turning occasionally, until shrimp is opaque throughout, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Top with remaining cilantro and fresh squeezed lime juice before serving. Be careful not to overcook.
