Step 1: Prep the Grill and Kabob Ingredients

LIGHT the grill. (If cooking the kabobs in the oven, pre-heat it to 450 degrees.)

SOAK the kabob skewers in a shallow pan of water.

REMOVE the tails from the jumbo shrimp.

TOSS the shrimp with lemon pepper and chili flakes in a medium bowl.

TOSS the veggies with balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil in a separate medium bowl.

Step 2: Assemble the Kabobs

SKEWER the jumbo shrimp and veggies. 

★TIP: You can skewer the proteins and veggies separately to accommodate a vegetarian diet. 

Step 3: Grill (or Bake) the Kabobs and Corn

Choose your cooking method:

GRILL (CHEF RECOMMENDED): Arrange the kabobs in rows on the grill. Place the corn on the grill over indirect heat. Grill for about 10 minutes, turning the kabobs and corn to cook on all sides.

OVEN: Place the kabobs and corn on a foil-lined baking pan, and bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes

Step 4: Cook the Polenta

BOIL the vegetable broth in a medium saucepan over high heat.

STIR the polenta into the broth and reduce heat to low.

COOK for 2–3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the liquid is absorbed.

STIR in 4 butter balls and the grated parmesan.

Step 5: Serve It Up

MELT 1 butter ball over each ear of corn and sprinkle with tajin seasoning.

SERVE the kabobs and corn with parmesan polenta and an ice-cold brew. Enjoy!
