  • 1 pound large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1 Spanish chorizo sausage, about 6-8 inches long, save a few square chunks for the end of the skewer.


  • In a bowl combine the shrimp, garlic, paprika, cumin, cayenne, salt, lemon juice, olive oil and cilantro.

  • Mix well and let marinade for at least an hour in the fridge or overnight covered.

  • Peel the onion and slice it into 4 pieces making sure to get some god-sized chunks to add to the skewer.

  • Cut the pepper into chunks also.

  • Cut the chorizo into good-sized slices.

  • Take a skewer and push a chunk of red onion all the way to the bottom almost.

  • Next add a piece of chorizo followed by a shrimp and then a piece of pepper.

  • Repeat the system until you’re almost at the top of the skewer where you’ll end with a chunk of chorizo.

  • Preheat your grill to high heat and place the skewers on to the surface.

  • Grill on one side for about 3 minutes or until the shrimp turn pink and the vegetables start to get slightly charred.

  • Turn each skewer over and repeat.

  • Serve at once with some rice or salad.
