6-8 shrimp or tofu squares per person
12-15 veggie pieces per person
1 Tablespoon olive oil per person
Salt and pepper to taste
Soak your skewers now, if you are using bamboo! Clean and peel shrimp, press tofu and
prep veggies into two-bite pieces. Typical veggies include—peppers, summer squash, zucchini,
eggplant, tomatoes, mushrooms, potatoes, but don’t forget winter squash, root veggies,
sweet potatoes and pineapple! (Par-boil or blanche hard veggies to reduce cooking
times) I prefer to cook lightly oiled shrimp on their own skewer—it’s easier to control the
cooking times, but veggies can be mixed, oiled, seasoned and grilled in any combination.
SAUCES—soy, honey-mustard, barbecue, marinara, spicy peanut, ranch dressing, ketchup,
horseradish, salsa, chutney, garlic butter, malt vinegar—did I miss anything?
