Ingredients

16 (12-inch) wooden skewers
Cooking spray
1 large zucchini, halved and sliced into 24 pieces
24 large peeled and deveined shrimp (about 1 1/2 lbs)
3 slices peeled fresh pineapple, cut into 24 wedges, each about 1/2-inch thick
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. honey
1 tsp. orange zest
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Soak the skewers in a shallow pan of warm water for at least 1 hour.
  2. Coat an outdoor grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Alternatively, cover a broiler pan with foil and preheat the oven broiler to high. Place the rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  3. Drain the water from the skewers. Using 2 skewers per kebab, thread on 3 pieces each of zucchini, shrimp, and pineapple.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, orange zest, ginger, cayenne, salt, and black pepper.
  5. Add the skewers to the grill or broiler pan and brush with some of the juice mixture. Grill on both sides for 3 to 4 minutes per side, basting with the juice mixture. Remove the kebabs from the grill and place on a serving platter.
