Grilled Pesto Shrimp Skewers

Fast and delicious, pesto shrimp skewers are great for a crowd or anytime really!  They are so easy to make.

1 container Due Cellucci Pesto
2lbs medium sized shrimp (I like to remove the tails)

1. Toss shrimp in basil pesto sauce and marinate for at least 15mins
2. Thread shrimp onto skewers (I have found that shrimp cooks so quickly that you can skip soaking wood skewers first)
3.  Cook on preheated grill about 2-3 mins per side or until pink and
no longer translucent. Can also be cooked indoors on a grill pan

Note: In the photos I was making this batch as part of lunch for 8 people.  You can adjust the recipe accordingly for more or less. If you don’t use the whole container of pesto just be sure to spread a layer of olive oil on top before putting it back in the fridge.This will keep it from browning too quickly.
