Preheat grill to medium-high. Mix orange juice and olive oil with choice of seasoning to make a marinade. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Let shrimp sit in marinade for about 15 min. Thread skewers with shrimp; alternate shrimp with onion and tomato pieces if using. Brush both sides of skewers with remaining marinade. Grill for 2 to 3 min. per side or until shrimp is cooked through, brushing again with any remaining paste while cooking if desired. Serve immediately.
