|1.||Soak skewer sticks in a bowl of cold water for at least 10 minutes (this will prevent them from burning while on the grill). Preheat grill to medium high.|
|2.||Build skewers by alternating veggies and shrimp, pushing ingredients closely together on each skewer. Brush each with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt.|
|3.||Lay skewers down on grill grates and cook about 3 minutes each side (for a total of about 9 minutes), until veggies and shrimp have good sear marks on them, but are not overcooked. Remove and place on a large platter.|
|4.||Squeeze a fresh lemon over the plateful of skewers. Serve!|
