Camping Recipe

Shrimp Kebabs


  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 Vidalia onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Wooden or metal skewers


Marinating the Shrimp

First things first – the marinade! This is where the magic happens. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, smoked paprika, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Add the shrimp to the bowl and toss to coat evenly. Let the shrimp marinate for at least 20 minutes. Trust us – this step is crucial for ensuring that every bite is bursting with flavor.

Prepping the Veggies

While your shrimp is soaking up all those delicious flavors, it’s time to prep the veggies. Cut the green bell pepper and red onion into 1-inch pieces. These sizes are perfect for skewering and ensure that everything cooks evenly on the grill.

Assembling the Kebabs

Now comes the fun part – assembling the kebabs! Alternate between the shrimp, bell pepper, and onion pieces on your skewers. This not only makes them look beautiful but also guarantees a bit of each flavor in every bite.

Grilling Time

Preheat your RV’s outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Place the kebobs on the grill and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side. Shrimp cooks very quickly, so keep an eye on them. You’ll know they’re done when they turn a lovely pink color and have nice grill marks. The peppers and onions should be slightly charred but still have a bit of crunch.

Serving Suggestions

These grilled shrimp kebabs are incredibly versatile! Serve them over a bed of rice, with a fresh salad, or alongside some grilled corn on the cob. For an extra touch, drizzle some additional lemon juice over the top just before serving. This easy camping recipe is a simple yet impressive dish that’s perfect for any summer BBQ. These shrimp kebabs are light, healthy, and full of flavor. Plus, they’re so easy to customize – feel free to add your favorite veggies or even a bit of pineapple for a sweet twist!
