1 1/3ouncemozzarella cheese(I used 4 1/3 ounce balls)
2cherry tomatoescut into 8ths
salt and pepper to taste
Add the shrimp, whole cherry tomatoes, and mozzarella to a small bowl. Add lemon juice and a tbs of olive oil to the bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine.
Cut the tomatoes into 8ths and the mozzarella balls into 3rds.
Once your cheese and tomatoes are ready, you can begin assembling the skewers. Insert a toothpick through the back of the shrimp, just above a tail. Then add a tomato piece and mozzarella piece so that they sit in the inner "c" shape of the shrimp. Fold up one basil leaf and slide that onto the toothpick. Finish by pushing the toothpick into the other side of the shrimp so that the toothpick pierces the inner side of the shrimp near where its head would be.
Repeat with each shrimp.
Serve immediately as is or garnish with extra lemon, basil pesto, or low carb vinaigrette. Enjoy!
