Description Edit

This deluxe skewer meal is made with authentic shrimp and herbs, enriched with lemon juice, and topped with guacamole for a monumental dish. Italian parsley rarely replaces the regular parsley and works for this, too.

Ingredients Edit

Guacamole Edit

Directions Edit

For the seafood base Edit

  1. Thread 4 shrimp close together on each thin wooden skewer. Melt butter in a pan.
  2. Add oil, garlic and parsley; heat just until bubbling, then remove sauce from heat. Place skewered shrimp on a rack in a pan; brush generously with garlic sauce.
  3. Broil shrimp 4 inches from heat until they turn bright pink, about 4 minutes. Baste more than once with garlic sauce.
  4. Turn and broil on the other side about 3 minutes or until shrimp feel firm when pinched; baste once. (Or place skewers on a greased grill about 6 inches from hot coals. Cook and baste as directed for broiled shrimp.)
  5. Place each skewer on a new, serving plate and lightly sprinkle with lemon juice. Serve with guacamole.

Guacamole preparation Edit

  1. Coarsely mash avocado, leaving some chunks.
  2. Add remaining Ingredients and mix to blend.
