Nothing says summer like a grilled weeknight dinner and this Greek-inspired meal comes together fast. Serve the shrimp kewers with this quick salad of grilled chopped zucchini, onion, and feta over couscous. All that's needed is lemon and olive oil to bring it all together.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat grill to medium-high. Thread shrimp onto metal skewers, with tails facing same direction. Brush shrimp, zucchini, onion, and halved lemon with 3 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill, flipping once, until vegetables are softened in spots, shrimp are cooked through, and lemon is lightly charred, 6 to 8 minutes for vegetables, about 3 minutes for shrimp and lemon.

  • Transfer vegetables to a cutting board, shrimp to a plate. Squeeze a grilled lemon half over shrimp. Roughly chop onion and zucchini; toss with lemon zest, 2 tablespoons oil, and feta. Season with salt and pepper. Toss couscous with remaining 3 tablespoons oil, juice from other grilled lemon half, and herbs; season with salt and pepper. Serve shrimp over couscous with zucchini salad, a drizzle of oil, and lemon wedges.
