Grilled Watermelon and Shrimp Skewers

This delicious recipe for Grilled Watermelon and Shrimp Skewers pairs perfectly with the Monarch 2017 Riesling.


1. Place lime juice, oil, Thai basil, honey and garlic in blender or food processor container; cover. Blend or process until basil is finely chopped. Reserve 1/4 of the marinade. Place shrimp in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add remaining marinade; toss to coat well.

2. Refrigerate 15 minutes. Remove shrimp from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread 1 shrimp and 1 watermelon cube on each skewer so that the watermelon cube is in-between the 2 ends of the shrimp.

3. Grill over medium heat 5 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink, turning occasionally. Serve skewers drizzled with reserved marinade.
