Come To the Dark Side, We Have Tater Tots. Recipe Alert!

Lucky me! The Boyfriend treated me to his BBQ grilling skills on Friday night.

Grilled Cilantro Lime Shrimp Kebabs      
Serving Size: 1 kebab
Calories per serving: 74
Proteins per serving: 13 g


  • 32 jumbo raw shrimp, peeled and deveined (17.5 oz after peeled)
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 24 slices (about 3) large limes, very thinly sliced into rounds (optional)
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
  • 16 bamboo skewers soaked in water 1 hour
  • 1 lime cut into 8 wedges
Heat the grill on medium heat and spray the grates with 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. Makes 8 kebabs.

Here are a few pics from Friday night:

Check out that steak!
It was a surf n' turf kind of night.
I ate the surf. The BF ate the turf.

  1. I'd have to eat off the bf's plate, although I have to say, I've never seen tots served with steak before! Yum! But I just can do the shrimp, although it does look good.....

  2. Love! Looks fantastic and sounds like a great time!

  3. I have to cook with the hubs sometime and teach him a thing or two... So awesome that your man is good with the grill!
