Take shrimp, zucchini, mini bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms and put onto skewers. Drizzle with cooking oil.

Combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl, then sprinkle over the skewers. Put the skewers on a hot grill, medium high heat (this will go quicker on an outside grill). Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, until the shrimp are cooked and vegetables are fork tender.

Take off and drizzle with lime juice and sprinkle cilantro over the top. Enjoy!
