Jumbo shrimp and firm peaches make the perfect kabob combination because they cook at the same rate. Married with a coating of sweet Asian barbecue sauce, these skewers of grilled goodness take only 6 minutes to cook on the grill and look impressive on a plate.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp peeled and veins removed
  • 2 firm peaches cut into 3/4 –inch wedges
  • 1 cup Asian Barbecue Sauce (use a commercial brand or prepare the recipe below)
Asian Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 cup commercial barbecue sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy or tamari sauce
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Instructions
  1. If you have a commercial Asian barbecue sauce skip steps 2 & 3.

  2. In a medium saucepan, stir together the sauce ingredients.
  3. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat and cook until brown sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 1 hour or use metal skewers.
  5. Thread shrimp alternately with peach slices onto the skewers. Brush both sides of the kabobs with sauce and refrigerate until grilling time. This step can be done several hours ahead of time for easy last minute meal preparation.
  6. Brush the grill with oil, and preheat grill to high.
  7. Grill skewers for 2- 3 minutes, then turn and coat the grilled side with more sauce. Continue to grill the kabobs for another 2 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink and opaque.

Recipe Notes

In Steamboat we can buy a locally produced Asian BBQ sauce called Chef Dean Martin's Asian Barbeque Sauce or try Trader Joe's Sriracha & Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce. Serve them with rice and a fresh green salad for an easy meal.
