Grilled Shrimp and Asparagus Skewers

Who doesn’t love food on a stick?! This super simple dinner is quick and easy, plus it won’t heat up the house by using the stove or oven!

A major helpful hint is to soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes before assembly so that they don’t burn while on the grill.
