Metal, flat-bladed skewers are best for grilling. Bamboo skewers are featured in this recipe; look for them in your supermarket. Soak them in warm water before using to keep them from burning during cooking.
A hinged grill basket would work well with this recipe. This grill accessory is designed to enclose several pieces of chicken, fish or vegetables. It rests directly on the grill and is easy to turn.
To broil shrimp and vegetables, place skewers on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using grilling times as a guide, turning once.
