I Actually Cooked Something

Barbecued Shrimp & Peach Kabos

If I am to cook, it must be super simple and taste delish. So, I thought I'd share a big accomplishment in my life this past week.  Here's how to make it.

12 skewers
1 Tbsp. packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp. chile powder
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper ground
1 pound of shelled and deveined shrimp, big ones
3 peaches, cut into 1 inch chunks
1 bunch of green onions, dark green parts trimmed, cut into 2 inch pieces.

Lime to taste and garnish
Get the grill ready, whatever grilling method you use.

In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, chile powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne, salt pepper. Add shrimp, peaches, and onion; toss until evenly coated.

Thread them onto skewers alternating the pieces

Grill 3 to 4 minutes or until shrimp becomes opaque throughout, turning once.
Plate it up and chow down!  4 servings at 135 calories per serving. So, this fed Mr. Seriously Though and myself just fine, so really for us, it serves 2!

We finished the evening with a fire in the back yard fire pit, dazzling stars, full moon,  Ardbeg single malt scotch, and amazing Artuero Fuenta cigars.

Yep. My life is pretty good.


  1. That looks delicious! Must try it very soon! Sounds like it was a wonderful evening indeed!


  2. Well it certainly looks delish! Yum!
