Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.

Skewers are needed for cooking.

Method

  1. Blend the cilantro, lemon juice, oil, and chili pepper together in a blender or food processor. Add salt and transfer the contents to a bowl. Add the shrimp to the mixture and toss to make sure that the shrimp are coated evenly. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate for about 30 min at room temperature (cool).
  2. Slice the zucchini into thick rounds (about 1 cm). Cut the onion into small "skewable" segments. Arrange the vegetables and shrimp alternately on the skewers. Cook on a medium grill for about 5 min, turning frequently, until cooked and browned.
  3. Serve immediately on the salad leaves.
