Lime Chicken & Shrimp Skewers


👩‍🍳This recipe by @rachaelsgoodeats is insanely good for BBQs, big dinners, keeping extra for leftovers the next few days of meal prep.

The biggest tip for kebabs (or anything on the grill) is to keep the lid on for as long as possible! This way, the lid can reflect some heat back down, cutting overall cooking time & creating better searing and caramelisation. 💯


➕2 organic chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into cubes
➕450g wild shrimp, rinsed & shells removed
➕2 limes, squeezed
➕¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
➕½ cup, finely chopped fresh coriander
➕½ tsp pink salt
➕¼ tsp ground pepper
➕¼ tsp chilli powder
➕Few shakes paprika
➕¼ tsp garlic powder
➕Few shakes red chilli flakes
➕2 red capsicums, roughly chopped into cubes
➕1 red onion, roughly chopped into cubes
➕1 zucchini, thick slices
➕3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


1️⃣Preheat grill for 15 minutes or until it reaches 250C/480C
2️⃣Add cubed chicken, shrimp, lime juice, ¼ cup olive oil, chopped cilantro, and seasonings into large bowl. Mix thoroughly & let marinate 20-30 minutes.
3️⃣Add chopped veggies to bowl with 3 tbsp olive oil, pink salt & pepper and toss.
4️⃣Rinse wooden skewers under water (this is to prevent meat from slipping off and also from burning), then begin assembling skewers, alternating between all ingredients. Once grill is preheated, add skewers to grill, close lid and let cook for about 10 minutes before flipping.
