Game Day Food Shrimp Avocado Bacon Skewers
Serves 4 Prep Time 12 minutes Cooking Time 8 to 10 minutes This is a fast easy game day food starter for tailgating or couch gating that bring a lot of flavor to each bite and is my adaptation of the Tiger Shrimp, Bacon, And Avocado Kabobs recipe from Hilaire Walden’s book Grilling, 365 health and delicious recipes
. I put these skewers on the grill with hopes that our home town team, the Carolina Panthers, could hold up against the Sea Hawks in the NFL play offs. However, it was not to be. Maybe next year, @Panthers #KeepPounding #GameDayFood This recipe uses avocado that can start turning brown if prepped too early. Therefore, cut the avocados and assemble just before putting skewers on the fire. Mix the marinade and add the shrimp before firing up your lump charcoal, wood or gas grill. Marinade for Shrimp 8 scallions, green parts 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 2 tablespoons of olive oil 1 tablespoon of soy sauce
Spread each bacon slice out on a cutting board and slice it in half lengthwise turning each long slice into two long bacon strings. Assemble skewers with a shrimp, avocado cube, shrimp and avocado cube. Wrap a string of sliced bacon around each avocado cube on the skewers. 3 bacon slices 12 large shrimp 1 large avocado, pitted, peeled, and cubed 6 wooden skewers (9 to 12 inches), soaked in water
Grill 6 to 10 minutes over direct heat to crisp up the bacon and turn the shrimp pink. Remove from the grill and put on a plate for serving. Finishing Fresh cilantro, chopped Lime wedges
For the final finishing touches, sprinkle freshly chopped cilantro and a squeeze lime over the skewers before serving.
