  • about 10 Bamboo Skewers


  • 2 pounds Shell On Shrimp deveined
  • 10 Scallions or Green Onions cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil Avocado Oil is a great substitute


  • Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl and combine.
  • Place a piece of onion then shrimp on a skewer.
  • Continue until all the onion and shrimp are on the skewer.
  • Cook the skewers over medium high heat on a grill.

  • Have all your ingredients prepped and lay out before you start adding them to the skewers. It gets messy and this helps keep that mess to a minimum.
  • Take care when adding the shrimp and onions to the skewers. They are sharp and can easily poke your hands.
  • Soak the bamboo skewers in water for about 20 minutes to prevent burning. This is optional as the shrimp cook faster than bamboo burns.

  • You’ll also need a grill or grill pan for this recipe.
