Instructions Checklist
  • Rinse and dry shrimp.

  • Whisk olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, pepper, and parsley together in a bowl and pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Add shrimp, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Lightly coat metal skewers with cooking spray.

  • Remove shrimp from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. Place about 5 shrimp on each skewer.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, about 5 minutes; do not overcook.

Cook's Note:

Wooden skewers may be substituted for metal skewers, if desired. Before using, soak wooden skewers in water for15 minutes to prevent them from catching on fire on the grill.

I followed the recipe exactly and I thought they were bland. Maybe I did something wrong and don’t it but I didn’t care for them. Had to dip in Cocktail sauce for flavor. Read More

DELICIOUS! I couldn't stop eating these! I only had time to let the shrimp marinate 1 hour, but that was still plenty of time to produce tons of flavor. I used more than a "pinch" of fresh parsley (about 1 tsp), since a pinch wouldn't even be noticeable. I served the shrimp with grilled veggies for the perfect low-carb meal. Read More

It was simple and delicious! However, next time I will be sure to tell the shopper (my son) to buy jumbo shrimp with the tails still on, peeled and deveinec. Those little bitty white shrimp were tough to clean! Still, a recipe I will make again. Read More

Excellent recipe. I used wood skewers, soaked for an hour and added 1/4 Tsp Cayenne to give it some heat and 1/2 Tsp Tarragon, 1Tsp Onion Powder and 1Tsp Rosemary for sweetness. Served with sauteed sweet peppers, onion rings and white mushrooms with garlic and fresh ground pepper. Great dinner. Jan Jepson Boffo Read More

Great recipe and they were very tasty the only suggestion that I would have is to use skewers that won’t allow the shrimp to spin or like I did used two wooden bamboo skewers. overall great taste Read More
