Shrimp skewers are a simple yet satisfying dinner option that can be taken to the next level with just a few unique Vegehome vegetables. We’re all about finding a reason to light up the BBQ, and this recipe will surely become a favorite! Tatsoi is excellent for grilling as it’s a cross between broccoli and bok choy. If you want to add a pop of flavor to your greens, try drizzling your plated dish with a balsamic reduction. Not one for a meal with an ingredient that hits 1,000 Scovilles? Swap the biquinho red brazil pepper for an herb such as dill and skip the cayenne.
