GRILLED SHRIMP AND VEGETABLE BOWL

Shrimp-and-Vegetable-Bowl

We love this delicious grilled shrimp bowl because you will never notice that there’s no rice and it is so good! Corn, peppers and zucchini topped with fresh avocado and lime juice is an easy light salad you’ll want to make all summer long! Eat in confidence!

GATHER:

32 (12 oz) large peeled and deveined shrimp
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Pinch cayenne pepper (or more, to taste)
Olive oil spray
1 (7 oz) zucchini, quartered lengthwise
1 medium red bell pepper, halved, seeds and membrane removed
4 small corn cobs, husks removed
4 ounces Hass avocado (1 small), diced
Juice from ½ a lime

MAKE:

*Gently pat shrimp dry with a paper towel and place them in a medium bowl. Add the olive oil and toss to evenly coat. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, brown sugar, ½ teaspoon salt, pepper and cayenne. Toss again and carefully skewer shrimp onto pre-soaked wood or metal skewers. Set aside. Lightly spray the bell pepper, zucchini and corn with olive oil spray and use your hands to evenly coat. Season with 1/4 tsp salt and pepper. *Over medium-high heat, grill the corn cobs, bell pepper halves and zucchini for 4 minutes. Using long metal tongs, carefully turn the corn cobs, peppers and zucchini then place the shrimp on the grill. Cook for an additional 4 minutes, flipping the shrimp after 2 minutes. *Remove everything from the grill at the same time. Place corn cobs on a cutting board and carefully cut off the kernels from the cob. Dice the peppers and zucchini. Place the kernels in a medium bowl with the peppers, zucchini, avocado and lime juice. Add ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to evenly coat.
*Divide shrimp and salad among 4 plates and serve.
