These grilled shrimp, watermelon and rosemary skewers are a great summer dinner that require very little effort on your part.Our grilled shrimp, watermelon and rosemary skewers are fresh and delicate in flavor. They are also a great addition to any barbecue or summer gathering.
I knew I had to put together these grilled shrimp, watermelon and rosemary skewers after tasting the crisp and refreshing watermelon Dry Sparkling soda. Marinating is one of my favorite ways to prepare protein during the summer. It infuses flavor while I can go about the rest of my day. It only takes a few ingredients to get fantastic flavors through marination.
Summer is the time I least want to be in the kitchen for hours cooking. So, anything that can be done on the grill is always at the top of my meal planning list. I also like easy dinners that are fresh and light like our crab stacks, cucumber marinated chicken and of course these grilled, shrimp, watermelon and rosemary skewers.
In addition to watermelon, Dry Sparkling has some other fantastic flavors that are especially delicious in the summer. Including cucumber, rhubarb, rainier cherry and Fuji apple. They are delicious on their own and work lovely in recipes as well.
