1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 (7 oz) zucchini, quartered lengthwise

1 medium red bell pepper, halved, seeds and membrane removed

DIRECTIONS:
Gently pat shrimp dry with a paper towel and place them in a medium bowl. Add the olive oil and toss to evenly coat. Add the onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, brown sugar, ½ teaspoon salt, pepper and cayenne. Toss again and carefully skewer shrimp onto pre-soaked wood or metal skewers. Set aside.

Lightly spray the bell pepper, zucchini and corn with olive oil spray and use your hands to evenly coat. Season with 1/4 tsp salt and pepper.

Using long metal tongs, carefully turn the corn cobs, peppers and zucchini then place the shrimp on the grill. Cook for an additional 4 minutes, flipping the shrimp after 2 minutes. Remove everything from the grill at the same time.

Place corn cobs on a cutting board and carefully cut off the kernels from the cob. Dice the peppers and zucchini. Place the kernels in a medium bowl with the peppers, zucchini, avocado and lime juice. Add ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to evenly coat.
