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 (I use my mister)
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.
