12th Woman Zesty Shrimp Skewers


  • 3 tbs. olive oil
  • 2 tbs. tomato paste
  • ¼ c  red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbs  fresh basil
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. liquid smoke
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 lb. jumbo raw shrimp (or prawns) peeled & deveined


In a small bowl, combine and blend well first 7 ingredients. Toss peeled and deveined shrimp in a gallon size ziplock bag and add the tomato glaze.  Smoosh around until all of the shrimp are coated, then toss in the fridge to marinate for at least 1 hour, smooshing occasionally.

While the shrimp are marinading, soak wooden skewers (plan on 3-4 shrimp per skewer) in water.

Pre-heat oven to 400. Remove the shrimp from the bag and place 3-4 shrimp on each skewer, leaving enough ‘grabbing’ room at the end.

Roast for 7-8 minutes, just until pink and firm and cooked through.

Transfer to a large serving platter and pass’em around. Enjoy!
