Get your grill ready because you’ll want to try these Grilled Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers. They are easy to make, Whole30-friendly, and so so delicious!
I’m so excited to share this recipe because I love it so much that I actually made it twice this week. Shrimp is one of those things I tend to forget about and then when I do remember to cook them, I can’t get over how delicious they are. Especially when paired with some delicious spices and flavors, it really can’t be beat.
This recipe started out with me just putting random ingredients together that I had in the kitchen to make the marinade. This is how some of my best recipes start sometimes. Nothing planned, just organically coming together from me experimenting with whatever available ingredients I have. It’s just the best feeling when it turns out as amazing as these Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers.
What is it about food on stick that makes them so much more tastier? These Lemon Curry Shrimp Skewers are the best cooked on the grill, but you can still enjoy them if you don’t have one. Just broil them for the same amount of time, or you can just pan fry them without putting them on skewers. Although, if you are like me, that’s definitely not as fun to eat!
Tangy and flavorful lemon garlic chicken drumsticks that you can cook on the grill or the oven. Perfect for a summer BBQ!

Grilling season is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited. What is it about the grill that makes food taste SO much better? I think it’s the char and the smoky flavor that’s infused into the food that makes grill recipes so dang tasty.
So when the lovely folks at Cave Tools reached out to me to review one of their grill accessories, I of course said yes! I decided to go with their Chicken Wing & Leg Rack, because I love me some grilled meats, and I was intrigued by the idea of this convenient tool that can cook the meat and vegetables at the same time. Such a perfect opportunity to make these lemon garlic chicken drumsticks!
Here’s how it works. The stainless steel rack can hold up to 12 chicken legs or wings, and the tray on the bottom catches the oil drips, which makes it a perfect place to put some hardy vegetables while on the grill so they can be cooked in some delicious chicken fat. Kinda brilliant, right?
You can even use the rack in the oven, which I will try out the next time I’m cooking wings or drumsticks. For the drumsticks, I suggest you use ones that are a bit bigger in size because the base of the bone needs to be big enough to hook onto the loops of the rack.
Overall, I really liked it. Using the Cave Tools rack does take a bit longer for the chicken to cook on the grill than if you place them directly on the grill rack, because the Cave Tools rack elevates the chicken so they are farther away from the heat. However, on the plus side, I didn’t have to turn the drumsticks every few minutes. I just closed the lid and was able to do other chores without worrying about it, and it was done in 45 minutes, and the chicken came out juicy and crispy.
Also, I cooked brussels sprouts and potatoes on the tray with the chicken, and they came out so crispy and delicious as well.
One thing to note – if you have a smaller grill, you may not be able to close the lid. We do have a small, portable grill, and the Chicken Wing & Leg Rack was too tall for me to close the lid fully, so I cooked with it slightly ajar. However, the lemon garlic chicken drumsticks still turned out moist and flavorful, and I highly recommend you try it out.
Don’t have a grill? Don’t worry, didn’t forget about you! Even without a grill, this rack will work wonderfully in the oven, and I even included in an oven method for this tangy, garlicky drumsticks in the directions below. Summer’s just around the corner, so I hope you enjoy this yummy recipe during barbecues and gatherings!

In a shallow dish, combine and whisk together all ingredients, except the chicken drumsticks.
Lay the drumsticks in the marinade in a single layer, and marinate in the fridge for 6-24 hours, flipping halfway through.
Cave Tools Chicken Wing & Leg Rack method: Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Fit the drumsticks into the racks, and place some hardy vegetables tossed with a little bit of oil and spices on the drip tray. Place on the grill, cover and let it cook for 45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
Direct grill method: Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Place the chicken on the rack and grill for 30 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.
Oven method: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the drumsticks on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 40 minutes, until the chicken is dark brown.
While the chicken is cooking, heat the marinade in a small saucepan on the stovetop over high heat. Once the sauce starts boiling, reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce is reduced and thickened, about 7-10 minutes. Drizzle over chicken before serving.

When life hands you lemons, make lemon bars. That’s how the saying goes, right? Or something like that? Well, life did hand me lemons this week. After working so hard to improve my health issues for over a year now, I’ve learned about a minor setback through a blood test. It’s been frustrating and upsetting, but at least I found about it early before things got worse. I’ll talk about it more in detail in a later post. I’m trying to keep a positive attitude about it, because there’s no use wallowing in it. It won’t help me heal faster. So, in an effort to look on the bright side, I made lemons bars out of all the lemons that landed on my lap this past week.
I love lemon flavored dessert. They are especially festive and fun during the Spring months. The flavor and the color instantly brighten up your day and your taste buds without weighing down your tummy. These paleo lemon bars are light and super lemon-y, as they should be, and also contain healthy fats with a good dose of vitamin C from the lemon zest and juice. It’s a great treat to make when you are going through a crappy time. I hope they’ll make your day happier like they did to mine!
