Shrimp Shish Kabob

This weekend the european football* championship started, and yesterday was Holland's first game. It was versus Italy, the current world champion. A friend invited me and a couple others over for a barbeque before watching the game, and we went dutch- everybody bringing their own food. So I made some shrimp shish kabob, since I'd wanted to post some of those here anyway.

Ingredients (for 1 stick);
- 3 medium sized shrimp
- 3 cherry tomatoes
- 3 small chunks zucchini
And the marinade (for +/-20 shrimp);
- a tablespoon olive oil
- a teaspoon garlic powder
- a teaspoon cayenne pepper
- a teaspoon dried thyme
- a teaspoon dried parsley

First put your marinade ingredients in a bowl that can hold your shrimp aswell. Toss in the shrimp and rub in the herbs, I prefer to do this with my fingers just to make sure they all get an even coating. Leave the bowl in the fridge for half an hour or so.
After those 30 mins, grab a stick and alternate your 3 ingredients. You can also choose to go with the decorative version you can see in the picture on the left- just use a cheese grater to make some zucchini slices. Put them on the grill for 10 to 15 minutes, you only want the veggies to go a bit soft (not too much) and the shrimp slightly crispy. If you like, serve with garlic mayo. Yumm.

The bbq was fun, my friends tasted and liked the shrimp. Then 'we' beat Italy with 3-0 by truely outstanding football* play. Friday is the next game versus France, cheer for us? ;)

*Aka soccer.
