Shrimp Kabobs for Smart Snacking

School is officially out for Graham and now comes the summer fun!  I am so excited to have this time with him again.  We have tons of plans for hanging at the pool, riding bikes and reading a few good books.  The one thing I am really trying to do is make sure I can offer a variety of foods for both of the boys while we are at home together.  I am thrilled to be working with KRAFT on this sponsored campaign in order to provide you with more fun ideas this year.

For me, summer is all about keeping it simple so I am trying a few recipes and ideas that will be different, simple, kid-friendly and fun!  Because Davis is such a shrimp lover lately I have been trying to serve them about once a week.  This week I decided to try some fun kabobs.  These would be great for a dinner idea or even fun for picnic recipes.  I also love that shrimp makes great finger foods for the kids.

Shrimp Kabobs Recipe

Shrimp Kabobs Recipe


  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup worcestershire sauce


  1. Mix all of the above ingredients together well.
  2. Place all shrimp on skewers putting a little space in between.
  3. Put the kabobs in a sealed plastic bag and pour marinade over top.
  4. Place in refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
  5. Pre-heat the grill for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Grill shrimp for about 1-2 minutes. Make sure to flip for about 30 more seconds.
  7. Serve right away or save for snacks.

Some other ideas I have involved making veggies more fun by offering dips as well as turning them into fun shapes and characters.  Also, both boys are really into eating outdoors.  I can offer them just about anything and take it outside and we have a winner!

What are your smart summer snacking ideas?

This post is part of a sponsored campaign by KRAFT.  These are my honest opinions and ideas.

  1. These do look fun and easy – and my kids would also eat pretty much anything as long as it is outdoors! I’m not sure why that makes eating so much better, but it does!

  2. I love how simple it is! It just sounds super delicious. I’m going to make this since my kids do love eating shrimp!

  3. Oh yum, I will try these this weekend. I love love love shrimp!

  4. I need to cook these up for the dude. They look great, Felicia!
