Ingredients

  • 1 pound deveined, peeled raw shrimp
  • 14 ounces smoked sausage, one package
  • 1 envelope Italian seasoning packet
  • 2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Instructions

  1. Begin by soaking wood skewers in water and thawing shrimp, if frozen, by running under cool water in a strainer.

  2. Place the shrimp in a sealable bag and add both seasonings, lemon juice, and olive oil to the shrimp. Shake to coat completely and set aside.

  3. Slice the smoked sausage into 1/2 inch slices.

  4. To make the skewers place the shrimp through the skewer so it can attach at both ends with the smoked sausage in between both ends or through the middle of the shrimp with the smoked sausage slice going on the skewer to set in the middle.

  5. Fill the skewers. Should make 8 skewers, depending on length.

  6. Place on a hot grill to the side of direct heat. Grill for several minutes on each side. Shrimp will be pink instead of gray when fully cooked.

  7. 2 skewers per serving.
