Whole30 + Keto Pesto Shrimp Kabobs

  • Author: Natalie
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 8 minutes
  • Total Time: 18 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 pound wild caught raw shrimp, thawed (I prefer getting peeled + deveined)
  • 1/4 cup pesto, plus more for brushing


  1. Preheat your grill over high heat (we use our Traeger and heat it over HIGH). Clean the grill grates.
  2. In a medium size bowl, add the shrimp and pesto and toss to combine.
  3. Skewer the shrimp on your skewers.
  4. Grill the shrimp for just 2-4 minutes per side, until the shrimp is opaque.
  5. Remove from the grill, and brush with a little more pesto.
  6. Serve warm. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container for at least 5 days.
  7. I love this dinner with my keto pesto caprese salad, and I’ll usually make some sausage skewers that I tossed in pesto as well. Any chicken, beef or pork sausage works! (The sausage skewers take about 10 minutes per side).
