In addition to being delicious, apples (in season right now!) are a good source of fiber, potassium and vitamin C. Pair fresh Cherry Creek apple with jumbo shrimp from Pete and Clara’s Seafood and Mizell Farms’ basil for skewers that are apple-utely the best. Serve over Cajun Grain rice to complete the meal.
Whisk together the honey, olive oil, basil, strawberry jam, red pepper flakes, garlic, red wine vinegar, lemon juice and white sugar in a small bowl. Place the apples and shrimp into a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the shrimp and apples, seal the bag, and shake to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Thread the shrimp and apples alternately on 4 metal or soaked wooden skewers. Discard the remaining marinade. Cook the skewers on the preheated grill until the shrimp are opaque, about 5 minutes per side.
