Add the potatoes to wooden skewers, leaving some of the mayo mix in the bowl for additional basting. I skewered two with corn on the cob and the other two with cherry tomatoes. Hubby hates cherry tomatoes so those were all mine!! I skewered shrimp and red onion on the last two.
Cook on a preheated griddle on the barbecue. We used the griddle so the potatoes and especially the tomatoes wouldn’t get so soft they would fall through the grates. I put the veggies on first and cooked for 6 minutes, flipping the skewers so they cook evenly.
Look at ’em sizzzle!!! Baste the potatoes with the mayo mix as they are cooking.
I then added the shrimp skewers and cooked them 3 minutes per side. Shrimp cooks very quickly, so you need to watch them to avoid overcooking. Overcooking shrimp will make them rubbery so cook until pink and a bit firm to the touch.
Serve with your choice of tossed salad. Another nice, light outdoor meal to share with family or for entertaining. Since these can be made in advance, you can whip up a bunch and serve at your next outdoor party.
