24 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

 

Directions

Special equipment:
Twelve 6-inch wooden skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes
  1. Squeeze the juice from half of the lemon and half of the orange into a large bowl, and then stir in the olive oil, thyme, paprika, salt, garlic and pepper, to taste.
