Watermelon on the grill? Absolutely. And a Thai basil marinade gives this colorful appetizer a hint of licorice flavor that makes a big impact.

  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Thai basil leaves

  • 1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic, Minced
  • 1 pound large shrimp (26 to 30 count), peeled and deveined
  • seedless watermelon cubes (1-inch cubes)
15 mins

1. Place lime juice, oil, Thai basil, honey and garlic in blender or food processor container; cover. Blend or process until basil is finely chopped. Reserve 1/4 of the marinade. Place shrimp in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; toss to coat well.

2. Refrigerate 15 minutes. Remove shrimp from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread 1 shrimp and 1 watermelon cube on each skewer so that the watermelon cube is in-between the 2 ends of the shrimp.

3. Grill over medium heat 5 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink, turning occasionally. Serve skewers drizzled with reserved marinade.Test Kitchen Tip: Soak bamboo skewers thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with shrimp and watermelon. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.
