  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 large garlic cloves smashed
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 24 large shrimp peeled, tails left intact
  • 1 sweet onion Vidalia or Walla Walla, cut into three ½-inch slices
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded & cut into quarters
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro divided


  • Heat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, curry powder, salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and toss to coat. Let it rest for 10 minutes.
  • Thread the shrimp onto 4 skewers, running the shrimp through the body and tail of the shrimp.
  • Lightly brush the onions and peppers with some of the marinade. Pour the rest of the marinade into a small saucepan, bring to a boil and simmer for about 4 minutes.
  • Place the onions and peppers onto the grill and cook until lightly charred and tender, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the grill and dice the onions and peppers. Mix them into the simmering marinade. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 tablespoon of cilantro.
  • Place the shrimp skewers on the grill and cook until the shrimp is just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Take care not to overcook the shrimp or they will become rubbery.
  • Remove the shrimp from the skewers, divide them between 4 plates, and spoon the onion sauce over the shrimp. Garnish with the remaining cilantro. Serve.
