To make the kebabs: In a food processor, combine the cilantro, lemon juice, water, garlic, curry paste, oil, and salt.
Process until smooth.
Divide the mixture between 2 medium bowls.
Add the shrimp to one bowl and toss to coat.
Add the mushrooms, peppers, onions, and zucchini to the other bowl and toss to coat.
Coat a grill rack or broiler-pan rack with olive-oil cooking spray.
Preheat the grill to medium or preheat the broiler.
Thread the shrimp onto 4 metal skewers.
On each of 4 additional skewers, alternately thread the mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, and zucchini.
Place the vegetable skewers on the rack and cook for 7 minutes per side, turning once, or until tender and lightly charred.
While the vegetables are cooking, place the shrimp skewers on the rack and cook for 5 minutes, turning once, or until opaque.
