The Iconic Aussie ‘shrimp on the barbie’ have come full circle with these delicious and really easy skewers….what are you waiting for? It’s Australia day this weekend. For my American readers, this is equivalent to the 4th of July with more beer and less jello salad. (I will do a recipe for one of those one day…but seriously, I personally will never ever eat jello salad with dinner…it’s just wrong!)

But, back to the recipe at hand…this is another of the Lakeside Joondalup summer series, and if you follow me at all, you could be forgiven for thinking I don’t do any other recipes of late…and you could be right. I am busier than ever and working on a lot of new fun stuff…including this new website.
