Ferla Spice Grilled Shrimp & Tomato

Ferla Spice Grilled Shrimp & Tomato

Serves 4 as an appetizer, 2 as a main.

The sun-kissed flavors of Ferla Spice are perfect for making this fresh-tasting and easy appetizer. 

3 bamboo skewers (10-inch)
9 shrimp (large, 8–10 count) 
9 cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons Ferla Spice
Sea salt and black pepper
Juice from half a lemon

Soak the skewers in warm water for about 20 minutes. Peel the shrimp, removing the heads but keeping the tails on. 

Put the shrimp and tomatoes into a mixing bowl and drizzle with the oil. Sprinkle with Ferla Spice and add a good pinch each of salt and pepper. Gently toss until the shrimp and tomatoes are evenly coated with herbs.

Load the skewers with shrimp and tomato (three each per skewer, alternating) To keep the shrimp from spinning on the skewers while grilling, push the skewer through both the tail and the body.

Grill over medium heat for 2–3 minutes before turning and cooking the other side for another 2–3 minutes. The shrimp will be opaque and pink. 

Remove the skewers and mound the shrimp and tomato on a serving dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve immediately.

    Hi Jeanne! Susan here from the Curio kitchen. Thanks for commenting. We love hearing from our community! We haven’t tried this recipe in an air-fryer (we need to get one!), so I can’t answer from personal experience. BUT, a quick little reaseach assures me that it’s fine to use bamboo skewers in an air-fryer, same as you would on the grill or under the broiler. The key, no matter the cooking technique, is to soak the skewers in water for about 10 minutes before using them. This helps to keep them from burning. Let us know how you go!

    Question: Can I cook the skewers in my air fryer?
