Spicy Drunken Shrimp Kabobs + Zydeco Fun

With the holiday weekend right around the corner, I've been looking through my grilling recipes and working on my Memorial Day cookout menu, which I will be posting a little later this week. My family has made several requests and  I'm adding a few of my faves, as well. Here's one of my favorite "all time" recipes for grilled shrimp and veggies You just can't imagine the wonderful flavors in these scrumptious kabobs, and so easy, too! Cest bon cher! Enjoy!

Spicy Drunken Shrimp Kabobs

1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails left on
1 bottle Mexican beer, (I used Corona)
1 onion, quartered, then halved
1 green bell pepper, 1 red bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, quartered, then halved
1 tbs. Cajun seasoning
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. Zatarain's liquid crab and shrimp boil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
2 tbs.'s fresh lime juice
Vegetable oil
8 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

 Season shrimp with Cajun seasoning in bowl and chop veggies and set aside. Place beer, crab and shrimp boil; garlic, thyme, lime juice, and Worcestershire sauce in large ziploc bag. Add shrimp and veggies, seal, and place bag in fridge for 1 hour. Remove from bag and discard marinade.Brush shrimp with vegetable oil and add a little more seasoning, if desired. Place on skewers, alternating shrimp with veggies. Place skewers on medium-hot grill and grill for 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Serves 4

Serve with my Cajun Style French Bread and a nice glass of white wine. Cheers, cher!

Zydeco Fun

Here's another little Zydeco clip that I took at Festival International, with some nitty-gritty dancin' going on. My friend Sally, with the short blonde hair and the white sleeveless shirt and blue capris, was really cutting the rug. This one's for you cher!

Wishing you all a happy and fun week! Merci beaucoup for coming by!

Feel like a Spicy Drunken Shrimp - probably look like one as well LOL.
Saw your pal Sally cutting the rug and just so you can see I am paying attention I spotted you bald gent pal as well. Great dancing! But there remains a certain lady dancer who is most elusive LOL. Cheers, cher _ Eddie

wonder why they call it cutting the rug, perhaps those high heeled sneakers cutting into the pile of carpet.

Hi Marguerite,
I was thinking of you the other day when we were planning our Mud Bug Party. Your Spicy Drunken Shrimp Kabobs would be a great addition to any party and I can't wait to try this recipe. Hope you have a great holiday week end and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
