Shrimp and Sausage Skewers

3–4 smoked Cajun sausage links (about 10 oz)
16 jumbo peeled/deveined shrimp (thawed)
Cooking spray
4 (12-inch) bamboo skewers
1/2 cup apple jelly
2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • Preheat grill. Cut sausage into 1/2-inch-thick slices (16 slices).
  • Coat both sides of shrimp with cooking spray.
  1. Thread tail of shrimp onto skewer, then slice of sausage, and then other end of shrimp (so that shrimp hugs sausage). Repeat until four shrimp and sausage pairs are on each skewer.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on HIGH 2 minutes, stirring once, or until liquefied.
  3. Place skewers on grill; cook 2–3 minutes on each side or until shrimp just begin to turn pink.
  4. Brush jelly mixture over shrimp; cook 1 more minute on each side or until shrimp are pink. Serve.
