Summer Fresh Shrimp Kebabs is one of the best known and best loved appetizers that are loved by everyone. The name means ‘Shrimp Kabobs’ and they are a wonderful recipe that uses fresh and soft shrimp. The recipe dates back to the time when the British army was stationed at Egypt. During their retreat, these soldiers would carry all the spices they could find and they used those spices to cook delicious and nutritious chicken and shrimp kabobs. In fact, the British soldiers were so fond of this recipe that it was adopted as an official recipe for a month.
The recipe dates back to the time when the French were also stationed in Egypt. They were equally fond of using shrimp for cooking and hence borrowed the recipe from the Egyptians too. However, in the middle of World War II, both the forces lost out on their fondness for eating chicken and shrimp and that is why the recipe fell out of use.
There are many different versions of the recipe that you can find in the old books that are used to serve dessert or for camping purposes. In fact, there are even many restaurants that serve the Summer Fresh Shrimp Kabobs. It’s interesting to note that these shrimps or grilled shrimp are very popular all over the world today and not just in the United States. This is because the flavors in the recipe have been preserved well and they have a very pleasant flavor. So, if you love shrimp kabobs and you don’t like to cook then this is a recipe that you should try.
