1/2 cup olive oil

3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

1 lemon, zested and juiced

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


Special equipment:
4 wooden or metal skewers
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, garlic, oregano, lemon juice, and zest and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Alternately thread the shrimp, squash, onion, and zucchini onto the skewers, using 4 shrimp per skewer.
  3. 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.
