Before the shrimp are threaded onto the skewers, they're tossed in a spice mixture of smoked paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and cayenne along with some honey, lime zest and juice. The corn, peaches and bread (which is optional) are brushed with vegetable oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. Now you can head to the grill!
The corn takes fifteen minutes at most and you can get the shrimp going at the same time. They take just one and a half to two minutes a side. When grilling the peaches, place the halves cut side down and grill just the one side for about three minutes so they don't get too soft. If you decide on grilling the bread, I found three minutes a side led to a Goldilocks result of perfectly crisp on the outside and still soft inside.
Now that you have all that deliciously charred shrimp, peaches, corn and bread, grab either a large serving platter or individual plates. Slice the peaches and cut the corn off the cobs once they're cool enough to handle.
To assemble, lay down a bed of your favorite greens and arrange the shrimp, peaches, creamy burrata, cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with corn and torn basil. You can simply drizzle on some olive oil and a squeeze of lime like my husband did, or go my route and splatter on a little Green Goddess Dressing. Either way you can't go wrong. Hope you enjoy! xx, Kim
