 Prepare grill for direct cooking over high heat. Toss prepared peppers, zucchini, and onion with oil in Granite-Ware Grilling Pan. Place pan on grill; grill vegetables 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, remove the shrimp from marinade and thread onto 4 skewers. Brush lightly with marinade; then discard marinade.  Place skewers on open grill, cook 3-4 minutes turning to brown all sides until shrimp is bright pink.

Divide grilled vegetables and shrimp between 4 plates. Serve with rice pilaf if desired.  Serves 4
