Total time: 25 min., plus marinating time


2 tbsp. GOYA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tsp. GOYA® Adobo with Pepper

1 tsp. GOYA® Minced Garlic or 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

¼ tsp. GOYA® Crushed Red Pepper

1 lb. jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 16 pieces)

1 large green and/or red bell pepper, cut in 1” pieces

1 lemon, cut into 8 slices

4 skewers


1.In zip-top plastic bag, or plastic container with a lid, mix together oil, Adobo, garlic and pepper flakes. Add shrimp, tossing to combine; transfer to refrigerator. Chill shrimp at least 15 minutes, or up to 30 minutes.

2.Remove shrimp from marinade; reserve any remaining liquid. Alternately thread peppers, shrimp and lemons on skewers, so that each skewer starts and ends with peppers and contains 4 shrimp pieces. Using pastry brush, brush reserved marinade onto shrimp and vegetables.

3.Prepare grill to medium-high heat, or heat a heavy-bottomed grill pan over medium-high heat. Place shrimp on hot surface and cook until shrimp turn pink and opaque, flipping once, 3 – 5 minutes.
