tandem cooking, a summer menu for two: 
Spicy Grilled Shrimp and Pepper Skewers
A very flavorful and attractive summer dish, particularly if you use different colored peppers. Onions would also make a very tasty addition – just substitute it for one of the peppers.

1 lb. shrimp
3 bell peppers, different colors (or sub 1 pepper with an onion)
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. paprika
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. salt
30-45 minutes, less if you don't de-vein shrimp

serves 3-4

1. Soak 16 wooden skewers in water.
2. Wash shrimp and pat dry on paper towels. Peel shells and discard. De-vein each shrimp if you have time (use a toothpick to pull out the long black "vein" that runs along the back of each shrimp – if the fact that the "vein" is actually a poop chute doesn’t bother you, feel free to skip this step).
3. Wash, de-seed and chop the peppers into 1" square sections.
4. Mince the  garlic with salt. Mix the garlic-salt with lemon juice, olive oil, cayenne pepper, and paprika in a large bowl. Add the shrimp and peppers and toss well to coat.
5. Get the grill started if you’re using a charcoal grill (gas grills don’t need to pre-heat), or if you’re doing this indoors, preheat the broiler.
6. Thread the skewers with the shrimp and bell pepper. Place the skewers on a large baking sheet and pour the remaining marinade over the top.
7. Grill or broil the kebabs 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve with coconut rice or plain rice.
