This grilled shrimp is marinated in a sensational medley of citrus juices, garlic, cilantro, parsley and basil. If you don't have a grill basket, thread shrimp onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. When using skewers, make sure to turn them over once during cooking.

This was a really great recipe. I'm always trying to find new ways to use up shrimp and this was definetly a crowd pleaser. I served the shrimp with rice and corn on the cob. It was a perfect way to kick off the summer. Read More

The marinade and I cringe each time I see a recipe that has marinated seafood was light in flavor that didn't overpower the natural goodness of the shrimp. It's such a fine line when marinating seafood with acidic bases as they tend to start cooking right away. One must be careful that your meal is not already prepared by leaving the marinade on too long. Otherwise a perfectly nice meal. Served with a green salad. Thank you Ron Goodwyne. Read More

I expected more flavor from the marinade - especially after all of the raving reviews but it was just........ good not great. I followed the recipe exactly rare for me but there's little sense in changing a recipe then reviewing the original and criticizing it. Keep in mind that any citrus especially lime juice begins to "cook" raw seafood.... so if you marinade the shrimp for a longer exposure to the ingredients you have effectively prepared a variant of ceviche. I think if I were to make this again I would suggest reserving the marinade until the shrimp are just about finished on the grill and pour it over the shrimp to create a "glaze" on the shrimp.

Easy to prepare and excellent flavor. The light flavors of the citrus and herbs enhance the flavor of the shrimp without overpowering it. Read More

Awesome grilled shrimp Ron! I followed the recipe exactly marinating about 4 hours and got wonderful results. I skewered the shrimp on wooden skewers to grill them and the flavor was incredible. They had a wonderful light citrus and herb flavor with a little kick from the red pepper flakes. I highly recommend using the fresh herbs to get great results. This recipe is a definite keeper!

checked for a grilled shrimp recipe and this was the first thing that popped up. I had most of the ingredients on hand so I whipped some up. BIG HIT with the family including my "doesn't really like shrimp" wife and my picky 7 year old. Prepared some vegetable kabobs to go along with them and had an amazing dinner. Will definitely use again. Read More
