Grilled Prawn Panzanella Skewers

Panzanella is a traditional Italian bread salad in which (normally stale) bread cubes make fresh summer vegetables a little stronger when they are fully ripe. Here the bread is more of a background player, which with its crispness forms a great counterpoint to the juicy-sweet grilled fruit and shrimp. Other grilled shrimp skewers that you will love are these grilled shrimp scampi skewers and grilled pesto shrimp skewers.

Which bread do you use for panzanella?

My favorite panzanella bread is sourdough, but you can also use baguette or ciabatta. Typically, you want a crispy, hearty bread that's about a day old so the products and vinegar don't make it mushy. Since we're grilling these skewers, the bread will be toasty and hard anyway.

You can easily double the bread if you'd like or leave it out entirely, but honestly, it's my favorite part! Panzanella is a bread salad, after all.

What to serve with panzanella

To top off your dinner, serve this grilled shrimp panzanella with these lemon, parsley and potato foil packets or this grilled corn salad with feta. If you want more veggies, toss some zucchini on the grill while you cook the kabobs.

Variations:

  • If you're gluten-free, use your favorite gluten-free bread.
  • Swap the sourdough for a ciabatta or baguette.
  • Use sub-cherry tomatoes for the grape tomatoes or larger tomatoes and cut into smaller pieces.
  • Swap the balsamic vinegar for red wine vinegar.
  • If you're a vegetarian, skip the prawns and use extra peaches and tomatoes.
  • If you want to take the food off the skewer and serve as a panzanella salad, add some cucumber, mozzarella, and kalamata olives.
