  • For sauce, in a small bowl, stir together the ketchup, lemon juice, chili powder and garlic. Brush shrimp and vegetables on skewers with half of the sauce.

  • For a charcoal grill, place skewers on the greased grill rack directly over medium-hot coals. Grill, uncovered, for 5 to 8 minutes or until shrimp turn opaque, turning once and brushing with remaining sauce halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Place skewers on greased grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.) Before serving, sprinkle with lemon peel. If desired, serve over hot cooked rice.
