For a quick, easy, and healthy meal, serve a green salad and fresh corn on the cob with these kebabs and you’re good to go.

2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
16 large shrimp, uncooked, deveined
10 medium cherry tomatoes, rinsed and dried
10 small white-button mushrooms, wiped clean and stems removed
In a glass measuring cup, squeeze limes, yielding ¼ cup of juice. Add the garlic, pepper, olive oil, and cilantro and stir.
Place the shrimp in a medium bowl and pour the cilantro lime marinade over the shrimp. Let the shrimp marinate for 10 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
