what to make with lemon shrimp

Another option is to serve everything on a bed of mixed greens or baby spinach.
how to grill the lemons, shrimp, corn and peaches
I’m a big fan of throwing as much on the grill as possible because it adds a nice flavor dimension. In this recipe, the shrimp, corn, lemon, and peaches are all thrown on the grill for a short period of time.
Prepare your red onion, tomatoes, and basil. Husk your corn and slice your lemons and peaches in half. Remove the pit from the peaches. Bring the grill to medium heat. Lightly add olive oil to the corn, peaches, and lemons (non-skin side). Season the corn with salt and pepper. Prep the shrimp by placing it on skewers or in a grill pan and baste them with butter and minced garlic.
Place the veggies, corn and shrimp on the grill. Turn the shrimp and corn occasionally. Pull the shrimp off once it turns pink (a couple of minutes. Cook the corn and fruit for 7-8 minutes until corn is cooked and fruit has a nice char.
Squeeze half of one lemon over the shrimp and season with salt. Put aside until you make the corn salad.
how to make corn, peach salad
Add your prepped tomatoes and red onion to a medium bowl. Slice the corn off of the cob on to a sheet tray or bowl (easier to keep it contained). Add the corn to the salad. Remove the skin from the peaches (it should pull off easily after being cooked). Slice and add to salad. Add olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice from 1 lemon, dijon mustard, and salt to the salad. Stir. Taste and add more salt if necessary. Add chopped basil and parmesan right before serving.
what kind of shrimp should I use?
You can use cooked or uncooked shrimp for this recipe. Just remember, if you use cooked, keep it on the grill for only a minute or 2 or else you’ll overcook it. If you use raw shrimp, grill it until it turns pink.
