It is a requirement on the fourth of July to celebrate America’s birthday by flaming up the grill and cooking whatever possible over the coals.  Kabobs are always a crowd pleaser, and when paired with a super easy and absolutely delicious dip – you can still allow yourself time to kick back, relax and soak up all of America’s star-spangled glory.

Combine ingredients and marinade shrimp for 30 minutes to an hour.  Add 5 shrimps to each skewer and season with kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper.  Grill on each side for approximately 2 minutes each.
