Recipe: Herbed Shrimp and Mushroom Skewers

Serves 4

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 1 ½ tablespoons fresh thyme and oregano leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 large lemons, sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 18 large shrimp, shelled, tailed and deveined (about 1 pound)
  • 18 large button mushrooms, stems removed


In a large bowl whisk together the olive oil, white wine, thyme/oregano, salt and pepper. Add the lemon slices and shrimp to bowl and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes, tossing occasionally. To cook, thread the shrimp, lemon slices and mushrooms onto skewers and place on grill or under broiler for about 8-10 minutes or until shrimp are cooked through and mushrooms are tender, basting with the marinade and turning occasionally.

Serve over rice or a green salad.
