Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 16 large shrimp, peeled, and deveined
  • 1 summer squash, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 zucchini, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Equipment: 4 wooden or metal skewers
Directions
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, garlic, oregano, lemon juice, and zest and season with salt and pepper.

  • Alternately thread the shrimp, squash, onion, and zucchini onto the skewers, using 4 shrimp per skewer.

  • Put the kebabs in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over the top. Marinate the kebabs at room temperature, turning occasionally, for 10 minutes.
