How do you make Cajun Shrimp and Sausage Skewers?

  • In a large bowl add the shrimp and salt and pepper. Add the pork sausage, olive oil, and cajun seasoning and toss.
  • Thread the shrimp on the skewer with the sausage in the center. Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Cook on each side for 1-2 minutes until the shrimp is opaque.

How long does it take to grill shrimp skewers?

These kebabs take only 1-2 minutes on each side.  Once the shrimp is opaque and the veggies are tender, you remove them from the grill.

How Long Do Skewers Need to Soak in Water?

While 30 minutes is the minimum, it’s best to plan ahead and soak your bamboo skewers overnight in water. It takes a long time for the skewers to soak up the water, but well-soaked skewers, which are slow to give up their moisture, will last longer on the grill without burning up.

Can You Prepare the Skewers the Night Before?

Yes! Place the skewers in the dish or pan, cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, preferably longer. I often prepare the shish kebabs the night before a dinner, so they have marinating almost 24 hours.

  1. What kind of sausage do you mean when you say pork sausage? Do you mean breakfast sausage or Italian sausage? Neither seems the right fit for Cajun Seasonings. Thanks so much!

  2. This sounds delicious. I assume you are using a fully cooked chicken or pork sausage that just needs rehearing? Do you have. Recommendation as to brand? Thank you.
