Sweet & Smokey Shrimp Skewers

I’ve been having a bit of a shrimp craving lately so I decided to make these Sweet & Smokey Shrimp Skewers last night for some friends we had over for dinner.
It’s a super simple recipe and just felt fun & summery.
I paired with some orechiette pasta tossed in home made pesto and some tomatoes Mike and the girls have been having fun growing in our backyard.
My friend just shared a great tip with me:
Use 2 skewers for each kabob so it’s easier to flip on the grill.
What you need:
1.25 pounds shrimp (the ones I used were about 20 shrimp/lb)
1 tbsp adobo sauce (buy the canned Chipotle in Adobo sauce and just use the liquid the chipotles are in for some slightly spicy smokey flavor)
1/3 Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 garlic clove, minced
dash of brown sugar
about 1 tsp Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Ready, Set, Cook!
Marinate Shrimp for about 1 hour and place on skewers using two parallel sticks to keep the shrimp from spinning.
Grill the skewers over medium heat about 4 mins a side or until just cooked through.
