Ingredients

FOR THE MARINADE—

FOR THE KEBABS—

Serve these kebabs with Garden Medley Skewers.

Instructions

Soak four 10-inch wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush grill rack with oil.

Combine orange juice and saffron in a small bowl; heat in microwave oven until juice is hot, about 1 minute. Let saffron steep in juice for 5 minutes.

Whisk together saffron-infused juice, oil, 2 Tbsp. parsley, garlic, zest, cumin, paprika, thyme, and salt for marinade in a large bowl. Add shrimp and stir to coat; marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Thread six shrimp per skewer onto four skewers, alternating with orange wedges and strips of bell pepper. Grill kebabs, covered, over direct heat until shrimp are nicely browned, about 2-3 minutes per side.

Garnish skewers with the remaining 2 Tbsp. parsley.

Steeping saffron threads in the orange juice quickly infuses the juice with color and flavor.

Pierce the thickest part of the orange wedges, shrimp, and pepper strips so they won’t slide.
