How to Make It
  1. Peel the shrimp down to the tail, leaving a little bit of shell at the end. Remove the veins and discard. Mix together the lemon juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, and a little salt and rub over the shrimp. Let the shrimp marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the charcoal grill. Thread the shrimp onto metal skewers, alternating with the tomatoes and green pepper pieces, until all the ingredients are used up.
  3. Place the kebabs on an oiled rack over the glowing coals and cook for 2–3 minutes on each side, basting with any of the leftover marinade, until the shrimp are tender and the tomatoes and peppers are lightly browned. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
