Garlic Grilled Shrimp (Recipe)


✅ 1 pound large shrimp

✅ 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (I use Kasandrinos)

✅ 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

✅ 4 cloves garlic, minced

✅ 1 tablespoon lemon juice

✅ 1/2 teaspoon salt
✅ 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

✅ pinch cayenne pepper, adjust to spice preference


1️⃣ Add the olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, garlic, and spices to a small mixing bowl and whisk together.

2️⃣ Place the shrimp in a bowl and pour 3/4 of the marinade on top of the shrimp. Mix together gently until the shrimp are well coated.

3️⃣ Cover the bowl and marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes to an hour.

4️⃣ Thread the shrimp on the skewers and make sure to get all the good garlic and herbs from the bowl and spread on to the shrimp.

5️⃣ Heat a grill or grill pan on medium high heat.

6️⃣ Once the grill is hot, place the shrimp skewers on the grill and cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes each side, or until they turn pink and opaque.

7️⃣ Remove the shrimp to a plate and spoon the remaining marinade on top before serving.
