  • 1/2 cup homemade pesto Click here for the complete Pesto recipe
  • 1 1/2 lbs jumbo shrimp — peeled (I also added 7 scallops too - but it is fine if you don't have it)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 7 wooden skewers


  1. In a large bowl, marinate the shrimp in the pesto for 30 minutes or overnight in the fridge.

  2. Skewer the shrimp and grill over medium-high heat until the shrimp is pink. It is about 2-3 minutes per side.
  3. Before serving, toss the shrimp with the rest of the pesto.
