- 1 lb local or wild medium shrimp
- 1/2 cup cilantro pesto
- 7 x 8′ wooden skewers

Step 1: Soak the wooden skewers for at least 2 hours. This will help prevent them from going up in flames when they hit the grill. Marinate the shrimp for at least 2 hours up to 6.

Step 2: Once marinated, with clean hands skewer 3 shrimp on each skewer. You can of course use larger metal skewers if you prefer. The skewers are really only for cooking purposes so you don’t end up loosing some shrimp on the grill.

Step 3: On a preheated hot grill, sear each skewer for 2 minutes each side until shrimp turn opaque and are firm to the touch.
