For shrimp:

  • 1 pound raw shrimp thawed & peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • Few cracks of fresh black pepper

For skewers:

  • 20 Grape tomatoes
  • 20 Fresh basil leaves
  • 20 Fresh mozzarella balls Ciliegine, boconccini, or pearls
  • 20 Wooden skewers
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Freshly ground black pepper


For Shrimp:

  1. Preheat oven to 450º F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil, parchment paper, or a Silpat baking mat.
  2. Place peeled shrimp in a bowl, add in oil, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, basil, and freshly cracked black pepper. Toss to combine, and pour out onto the prepared sheet pan, arranging shrimp in a single layer.
  3. Bake in preheated oven, about 6-8 minutes, or until just until pink and firm throughout. (Shrimp can be served hot at this point, for dinner or as an appetizer, or allow to cool to room temperature for Shrimp Caprese Skewers).

  1. Skewer a shrimp, grape tomato, basil leaf, and fresh mozzarella ball onto a wooden skewer, wrapping the shrimp around the tomato if desired.
  2. Drizzle balsamic glaze over the skewers, and garnish with freshly ground black pepper.
