Marinated Shrimp Skewers (gf, df) Makes 8-10 skewers

Here's a fun way to enjoy shrimp: cool and tangy, with an Italian flair!


1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 red bell pepper

1/2 celery stalk, coarsely chopped

16 Kalamata olives, pitted

1 clove garlic

1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice (about half a lemon)

Handful fresh parsley

Salt and pepper

1 pound shrimp, precooked

Combine olive oil, bell pepper, celery, olives, garlic, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper in a food processor; blend until smooth. Add shrimp to marinade and let sit in fridge for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. Place shrimp on skewers. Serve cold.

Note:Do not prepare this the day ahead, as the shrimp will continue to cook in the lemon juice and will become tough.
