Combine arugula, macadamia nuts, parmesan, garlic and lemon into a food processor. Pulse a few times to break up ingredients. Turn food processor on and slowly drizzle olive oil into food processor until desired consistency. Taste and add salt & pepper for desired taste.
Brush pesto over both sides of skewered shrimp. Over high heat, cook shrimp on grill or griddle. Cook 3-4 minutes per side until shrimp is firm and no longer translucent.
Serve with lemon wedges.
You can also mix a little basil with the arugula for a varied flavor.
