Our Backyard Grilled Garlic-Butter Shrimp

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Simple flavors... Grilled shrimp, finished in a basic, yet 'oh, so good' garlic and butter sauce. I am not a shells-on gal but they make heck of a difference. Pick them off the serving plate and enjoy! Get a napkin--you'll need it."

  1. Place parsley and olive oil into a resealable plastic bag. Add shrimp, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Soak skewers in water during the last 30 minutes or so.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove shrimp from the marinade and thread onto skewers. Season generously with seasoned salt. Place parsley and remaining marinade in a grill-safe pan with butter and garlic.
  4. Grill skewers until shrimp are pink and firm, about 3 minutes per side. In the meantime, place the grill pan on the grate; melt and simmer the butter-parsley mixture until butter is just golden-brown, 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Remove shrimp from skewers and drop into the butter-parsley mixture. Toss to coat. Serve immediately.
