If you're getting ready for Fourth of July or any other summer gathering, then you'll want to make sure that there are some tasty and low carb goodies for you to enjoy. And although they take a little while to prepare (like all skewers!) they cook REALLY quickly: the sausage is already cooked, the zucchini is sliced, and the shrimp only need a few minutes on each side!
As you probably know, I'm a huge fan of the European style sausages from Klement's. I've tried many of their products (you can find all my reviews and recipes here) and their quality is outstanding. And great for low carbers, of course, because less fillers equals a lower carb count.
How to Make Sausage, Shrimp and Zucchini Skewers
For this recipe I decided to use a Smoked Sausage Loop, which is made from both pork and beef.
I cut it into slices and of course couldn't resist having a taste test! The smoky flavor was perfect for the skewers!
Usually for skewers on the grill I pre-soak the wooden skewers, but in all honesty these skewers aren't on the grill for very long – so you could skip this step if you want. I used 6″ bamboo skewers.
Thread one slice of zucchini, one slice of sausage, and one shrimp onto each skewer. Any order is fine but I think it makes for a pretty presentation if you keep them all the same and curl the shrimp around the curve of either the zucchini or sausage.
Season with salt and pepper – although you may find it easier to do this when the skewers are on the grill.
Cook them on the grill (or if cooking inside you could use a grill pan) for 3-4 minutes on each side.
I served these skewers with my homemade Smoky Barbecue Sauce – it's sugar free, low carb and works perfectly with these skewers.
By the way, if you're looking for the perfect low carb dessert for the Fourth of July, try these red, white and blue cheesecake berry cups!
- 14 oz Klement's Smoked Sausage Loop, cut into 40 slices
- 2 zucchini, cut into 40 slices
- 40 raw shrimp, peeled
- salt and black pepper
- 1 batch Smoky Barbecue Sauce
- If using wooden skewers, pre-soak 40 of them in cold water for at least an hour.
- Thread one slice of zucchini, one slice of sausage, and one shrimp onto each skewer. Any order will do but it makes for a nice presentation if you keep them all the same and curl the shrimp around the curve of either the zucchini or sausage.
- Season the skewers with salt and pepper then cook them on a hot grill (or if cooking inside you could use a grill pan) for 3-4 minutes on each side.
- Once the skewers are cooked, lay them out on a platter and serve with the barbecue sauce.
