Orange + Rosemary Shrimp Kabobs
10 fresh large shrimp, cleaned, but with tails, (about 8ounces) 5 slices turkey bacon, halved crosswise 3/4 cup red, yellow, and/or green sweet pepper, cut in 1inch pieces 6 inch skewers 1 1/2 teaspoons finely shredded orange or blood orange peel 1 tablespoon orange or blood orange juice 1 teaspoon snipped fresh rosemary 1 1/2 cups hot cooked rice 3/4 cup cooked or canned black beans, rinsed and drained
Rinse shrimp. Pat dry with paper towels. Wrap each shrimp in a half slice of bacon. Alternately thread shrimp and peppers on skewers. Use a small bowl to combine 1/2 teaspoon of the orange peel, the orange juice, and rosemary. Brush over kabobs. Coat grill with cooking spray. Preheat for 5 minutes. Cook 2 1/2 to 4 minutes, until shrimp turn opaque and bacon is crisp. Stir together the rice, beans, and remaining orange peel in a medium saucepan. Heat through. Serve the kabobs with the rice mixture. Makes 2 servings.
