Frequently Asked Questions

What vegetables are good with shrimp skewers?

Shrimp kabobs typically contain shrimp along with some type of vegetable. I’ve chosen vibrant peppers and onions, yet consider mushrooms, zucchini, tomatoes, squash, or boiled potatoes as delightful alternatives.

What goes well with shrimp kabobs?

Pair these kabobs with Sauteed Broccoli, Air Fryer Green Beans, or Roasted Carrots. Or, toss some Grilled Zucchini on the barbie while the cook. Salad. Arugula Salad, Spinach Strawberry Salad, Asian Cucumber Salad, and Ramen Salad would be tasty with these kabobs.

How long to marinate veggies for kebabs?

Marinate the vegetables for at least 15-20 minutes, up to overnight. The longer you marinate, the more flavor the kabobs will have. For unmarinated veggies on skewers, soak them to prevent burning while grilling.

What vegetables can you pre cook for kabobs?

When you’re dealing with veggies like sweet potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, and fennel that take a bit longer to cook, give them a quick par-boil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Added bonus: This pre-cooking step makes them easier to thread on skewers.
