Shrimp and sausage skewers are summertime surf and turf...quick and easy grilling for hot, sultry days.
Stir together the sugar and salt, add the shrimp and toss well to coat. Refrigerate for 30 mins - 1 hour.
Place the brined shrimp in a colander and rinse very well with cold water.
Whisk together all of the ingredients and add the shrimp. Cover, refrigerate and marinate the shrimp for 30 mins - 1 hr.
Heat the grill to med/high heat.
Thread alternating pieces of shrimp, sausage, peppers and onion on skewers. It's easiest if you skewer the shrimp through the head and tail forming a "c" so they don't fall through the grill.
Grill, turning once, until shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 6 mins.
