- 1/4 teaspoon salt shopping list
- 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper shopping list
How to make it
- CHILL TIME 1-24 HOURS
- Thaw shrimp, if frozen.
- Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact, if desired. Thread shrimp onto eight 8-inch skewers, leaving 1/4-inch space between pieces (you should have 3 to 4 shrimp per skewer).
- Brush lightly with some of the olive oil; set aside.
- Lightly brush sweet peppers or onions with remaining olive oil.
- For a charcoal grill, grill shrimp skewers and vegetables on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals.
- Grill shrimp for 9 to 11 minutes or until shrimp turn opaque, turning once halfway through; grill peppers for 15 minutes or until charred, turning occasionally.
- Grill onions about 5 minutes or until limp and slightly charred, turning once halfway through. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place peppers or onions, and shrimp directly over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
- Wrap peppers in foil and let stand about 15 minutes or until cool and skin loosens.
- Remove stems and seeds from peppers.
- Using a sharp paring knife, peel peppers.
- Place shrimp skewers on a tray; cover and chill in the refrigerator 1 to 24 hours.
- In a blender or food processor combine peppers or onions, sour cream, salt, and black pepper.
- Cover and blend or process with a few on/off turns to coarsely chop the mixture.
- Transfer to a small bowl. (Or, coarsely chop the vegetables. In a small bowl stir together the sour cream, vegetables, salt, and black pepper.)
- Cover and chill in the refrigerator 1 to 24 hours. Serve dip with shrimp on skewers.
