Grilled shrimp and watermelon kebabs are quick, easy and the perfect sweet and savory summertime supper!


  • 10 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 10 one inch square (or thereabouts) cubes of watermelon
  • Olive oil
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • Lime, cut into wedges
  • Rice (optional)


  1. Heat grill to high. Thread 5 shrimp and 5 watermelon cubes onto two metal skewers. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with red pepper.
  2. Carefully lay the skewers on the grilled and cook for 3-5 minutes per side until the shrimp are opaque. You’ll want to turn the skewers with tongs because the metal will be hot hot hot.
  3. When the shrimp are done, place on a platter (either on their own or on a bed of rice). Scatter cheese, scallions and nuts on the top.
  4. Drizzle with a little more olive oil and serve with lime wedges.
