Prep time: 20 min.

Total time: 25 min., plus marinating time


2 tbsp. GOYA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 tsp. GOYA® Minced Garlic

½ tsp. GOYA® Adobo Light All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper

¼ tsp. crushed red pepper

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

1 large green bell pepper, cut in 1" pieces

1 lemon, cut into 8 wedges


1. In zip-top plastic bag, or plastic container with a lid, mix together oil, garlic, Adobo Light and crushed red pepper. 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 lemon on metal or pre-soaked wooden 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 mediumhigh heat. Place shrimp on hot surface and cook until shrimp turn pink and opaque, flipping once, 3– 5 minutes. Remove from skewer before eating, if desired.
