People. Um. It’s June.

Are you saying what I’m saying? “What?! When? How?” I knoooow…what the!?

BUT, with June comes white-clothes season! YES!!!

Ahem… Please don’t forget to double check that those white pants you’re about to wear aren’t see-through. Go near a window and hold the mirror… do you see some dimple action? Or granny panties? Change your pants.

I’m just trying to help… 🙂

Hey! You know what else?! Grilling season is here! Among other things, that means that Moms can take a break because Dad is in charge of making dinner! SCORE!

And he needs to cut the grass. And buy the beer. Aaaand clean the garage…

I’ll give him one day off; Father’s Day! I’ll even prepare his favorite – these Grilled Lemon and Thyme Shrimp and Veggie Skewers!

These shrimp skewers are seriously fantastic. This is my favorite way to enjoy some shrimp poolside, backyardside, above the kitchen sinkside… you know how it is.

These skewers are the result of my favorite fish marinade. In fact, I don’t know how you do fish, or shellfish, without lemon, olive oil, and some fresh thyme. Ain’t nothin’ better. Buhlieve me!

I have to confess about the shrimp. Yeah. Those are from Wal-Mart. Precooked and all. The day you see me shelling shrimp, or anything else that can move, is the day that will never, ever come to be. Ewwwww!! Seriously, if I had to kill my own food, I would never eat. No way!

And going vegan is not an option because I will be hungry, forever.

So. Go and get some frozen, precooked shrimp and do me a favor; let the shrimp soak up this marinade for a good 30 minutes to 1 hour, in the fridge. In the meantime, fire up the grill and keep it at medium heat. Shrimp don’t likey to be burney, m’kay? Good.

  1. Kate, you made me smile–my white pants and shorts show up on Memorial Day and get put away on Labor day regardless of the temperature outside. I don’t own white shoes, so I’m not all fussy about those, but the pants (and the appropriate undergarments) you bet I am.
    I was hoping this recipe called for like a cup of fresh thyme, as I’ve got The Thyme That Ate Ohio taking over my herb bed right now.

  2. June means two things – it’s summer and it’s grilling season!! I’ve been on a serious shrimp kick lately, these looks totally craveable.

  3. Oh I understand you with the shelling… I hate shelling shrimps, it takes forever! I always ask my mother in laws servant if she can do it for me or the helpers in the restaurant. ^.^

    Love love love your skewers!!

  4. Nom! Nothing like shrimp on the barbie in the summer. Tasty looking grilled shrimp skewers, Kate! I’m with you on the “ewww”. Although, I buy my shrimp fresh, peeled and deveined…all ready to go (or freeze)! And, yes…marinating is a must for flavor! xo

  5. Delicious skewers … I have to get some marinating and throw them on the bbq cause, finally, it’s warm enough to go out and bbq. And for those of us whose households are male-deficient … well, we just have to (wo)man up and do our own bbq’ing. 🙂

    PS: Shelling raw shrimp is not a biggie but mine come without the heads.
