Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons GOYA® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon GOYA® Adobo with Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon GOYA® Minced Garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon GOYA® Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 large green and/or red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 lemon, cut into 8 slices
  • 4 skewers

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In zip-top plastic bag, or plastic container with a lid, mix together oil, Adobo, garlic and pepper flakes. Add shrimp, tossing to combine; transfer to refrigerator. Chill shrimp at least 15 minutes, or up to 30 minutes.
  2. 2 Remove shrimp from marinade; reserve any remaining liquid. Alternately thread peppers, shrimp and lemons on 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. 3 Prepare grill to medium-high heat, or heat a heavy-bottomed grill pan over medium-high heat. Place shrimp on hot surface and cook until shrimp turn pink and opaque, flipping once, 3 - 5 minutes.

Chef's Notes

Keep Shrimp Stable on the Skewer; If your shrimp slip or spin around the skewer when you try to flip them on the grill, the result could be an unevenly-cooked crustacean and unnecessary frustration. Next time, make sure the shrimp stay put by using two skewers: Simply thread the shrimp with the first skewer and align second alongside to form two parallel lines. Then, grill with ease.


  1. I liked it but next time I'm adding other veggies to it like mushrooms and summer squash. I think it would be better too if all the veggies were marinated. I'll keep you posted next time I make it.
