Ingredients

  • 14 oz Klement's Smoked Sausage Loop cut into 40 slices
  • 2 zucchini cut into 40 slices
  • 40 shrimp raw, tail-on
  • 1 batch Smoky Barbecue Sauce

Instructions

  • If you like pre-soak 40 wooden skewers in cold water for at least an hour.
  • I also sliced some zucchini - you can get about 40 slices from the smoked sausage, so I cut 20 from two zucchini. So you'll also need 40 shrimp! I used raw, tail-on shrimp.
  • 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.
  • Cook them on the grill (or if cooking inside you could use a grill pan) for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the sauce according to the separate recipe instructions.
  • Once the skewers are cooked, lay them out on a platter and drizzle them with some of the sauce. Pour the remainder in a small bowl for dipping.

Notes
