  1. Preheat the BBQ to 400°F.
  2. For the sauce, puree all ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Reserve.
  3. Put the vegetables on separate skewers as they take a little longer to cook than the shrimp. Toss both the vegetable and shrimp skewers with half of the prepared sauce.
  4. Place the vegetable skewers on a lightly oiled grill and cook for 5 minutes with the lid down. Add the shrimp skewers and cook for another 8-10 minutes, turning every few minutes. The shrimp should be pink and cooked, and the vegetables tender. Cook longer if needed as grill temperatures range.
  5. Remove the hot vegetables and cooked shrimp from the skewers and place in a bowl. Toss with remaining sauce. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve.
