  1. Roast beets at 350 degrees for ~60 minutes. Set aside.  Cool for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Prepare Vinaigrette of choice and set aside.
  3. Prepare Barbeque sauce if desired and set aside.
  4. Skewer shrimp on pre-soaked wooden skewers (soak in hot water).

  6. Place shrimp skewers on grill and cook on both sides ~2-3 minutes.
  7. Once done, place on plate and lightly toss or coat with barbeque sauce. The heat from the shrimp should heat up the barbeque sauce (feel free to lightly coat shrimp with sauce while on the grill – avoid extreme dripping into the grill).
