Grilled Harissa Shrimp
Harissa shrimp skewers make for a fast and effortless grill dinner. They make for an ideal summer addition, pairing perfectly with light Israeli couscous salad.
This marinade is composed of pantry staples and smoky harissa paste to add some heat and kick to the dish. Made with red chiles, garlic, and olive oil for an irresistible summer flavor that’s sure to please everyone’s palate.
To prepare the harissa, toast caraway, coriander and cumin seeds in a small skillet over moderate heat until fragrant – 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a spice grinder and grind until powdery. Combine this ground mixture with paprika, garlic and olive oil before seasoning to taste with salt.
Before grilling, soak wooden skewers in water for 15 minutes. Doing so will help them cook more quickly and evenly.
After marinating the shrimp, preheat your grill to medium high heat and thread them onto skewers. Grill for approximately 2-3 minutes per side until cooked through – be sure not to grill too long or the shrimp may become rubbery.
Once the shrimp are done cooking, serve them with a refreshing Israeli couscous salad that includes mint, cucumber and plums as well as radishes, basil and cilantro for flavor.

Once the shrimp have grilled, remove them from their skewers and serve with couscous salad. For an added touch, squeeze some lime juice over for some brightness and zest in your dish.

For something with more substance, crab-inside shrimp is the ideal dish. Not only is it delicious, but also easy to prepare.
Crabs are an aquatic crustacean that’s becoming increasingly popular in culinary circles due to their nutritional profile. Crab meat contains large quantities of free amino acids and sugars that cannot be replicated elsewhere, giving it a distinct and flavorful texture.
Crabs possess a biological trait that makes them especially useful in the kitchen, as they can learn to eat and recognize food – particularly helpful since crabs lack teeth.
Crabs differ from mammals in that they cannot chew large pieces of food at once, preferring instead to consume smaller portions over a longer period of time in order to survive. This is because their anatomy prevents them from breaking down larger chunks at once.
This recipe showcases tender shrimp with crab-stuffed stuffing for a delectable appetizer. You can serve it alone, alongside salad, grilled fish or even as part of a sandwich!
Preparation: Begin by prepping the shrimp. Next, make the stuffing by mixing together crabmeat, crushed crackers or panko breadcrumbs and parsley with melted butter. Season to taste with Kosher salt and black pepper before stuffing each shrimp. Place on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet or in a shallow baking dish and bake until shrimp are opaque and the filling has turned golden brown, approximately xx minutes.
Once your shrimp is done, garnish with more bread crumbs and parsley. This makes an excellent appetizer for parties or a quick lunch on the go.
Serving: To complete this meal, serve with some pasta such as penne or macaroni for a satisfying yet light bite. Alternatively, try substituting zoodles for carb-free convenience.
Crab-stuffed shrimp make for an irresistible appetizer at any gathering, especially when served with wine or beer. You could also pair them with a refreshing green salad for an all-inclusive dinner – just don’t forget to make plenty!
