"Shrimp and apples are marinated in a sweet and spicy sauce, then skewered and grilled. Serve over white rice, noodles, or a mixed green salad." — MOONROZE

chopped fresh basil
crushed red pepper flakes
red wine vinegar
Gala apples, cored and cut into eighths
jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
These shrimp were so tasty! I don't like hot fruit, so I did not use the apples on the skewers, but didn't want to lose out on the apple flavor, so I added 1.5 T. of applesauce to the marinade (apple juice works, too), and used brown sugar instead of white. Let the shrimp marinate 2 hours, threaded them onto skewers, boiled the marinade 3 minutes to use for basting, and they were out of this world! I served them with garlic butter rice and sauteed zucchini.... delicious, delicious dinner!
hmmm these were just alright not a big hit here. Might try again but with some tweaking.
GREAT shrimp! I pretty much followed the recipe except I made a little more of the marinade by adding a bit more of this and that accordingly and I also added salt to taste, and I used 2 lbs of frozen uncooked large white shrimp that were peeled & deveined. I thawed them in cool water, tossed with the marinade & made the rest of dinner. Threw them on the 'barbie' and they were perfect. Only use fresh basil please, and double the basil amount. YUM!!!! I also made them again about a week later and I sauteed' them in a hot skillet over the stove. They were great! Cokking them this way only took about 2 minutes, and I seared them along with the marinade.
I didn't change anything about this recipe except to use hubby's homemade, roasted pepper hot sauce instead of red pepper flakes & to double the marinade, reserving half. I plated the spears, after grilling, on a bed of grilled asparagus spears & drizzled the skewers & the asparagus w/ the reserved marinade. You're going to need extra sauce to drizzle on the skewers (they weren't nearly as flavorful w/out it) so you might as well grill up some asparagus, because it's wonderful on it as well. I started the meal off w/ grilled, prosciutto-wrapped figs w/ a balsamic reduction, Sweet Seductions (a drink recipe from allrecipes), the shrimp & apple skewers & asparagus & grilled corn (kept it very simple...just added butter & salt after grilling. The buttery/salty flavor was a great complement to the sweet/tangy flavor of the shrimp & apples). Homemade spritz cookies for dessert. We were still raving about dinner over coffee this morning! Thansk for an outstanding recipe, MOONROZE!
Wow, phenomenal! I marinaded the shrimp for about 1.5 hours- omitting the sugar and using fresh raspberries and whole fruit preserves. I served my kids and went into the house to grab the salad. By the time I returned to the outside table, my 2-year old son had already eaten an entire skewer of shrimp and apples. He begged for more! Definitely use this again and again! Goes great with fresh salad, berries, and spinach!
I think this is one of the best things I have ever cooked on allrecipes. I did this for a get together I had in my back yard. I also did another recipe for shrimp skewers that had zucchini and onions on them. Those were good, but couldn't compare to these and since we didn't have enough, everybody was fighting over these! Things I changed: I let them marinate for a lot longer, like 2-3 hours. And I doubled the marinade recipe, I had huge shrimp, and I usually always end up doubling it any recipe that has a marinade. Good thing I did or it wouldn't have been enough. One last thing, we added pineapple because we happened to have a bunch in the fridge and I knew it would be good, and it was. I think the amount was around 2 cups, but I can't be sure...about as much as the apple amount. You need to add pineapples to this for sure!
Great recipe! My husband and I make this whenever we have company. I have used both lemon juice, and lime juice, and both turned out great. Very simple, delicious, and looks nice for company. Definitely recommended!
Loved this recipe...I also followed it closely but subsituted orange vinegar for the red wine vinegar and left the shells on the shrimp to reduce the chance of 'over-grilling'. I would definitely make this again.
