Mediterranean Shrimp Kabobs 


For the Marinade

✅ ⅓ cup Extra virgin olive oil

✅ Zest of 2 lemons

✅ 4 garlic cloves minced

✅ ¼ cup packed chopped fresh parsley

✅ 1 teaspoon oregano
✅ 1 teaspoon paprika

✅ ½ teaspoon coriander

✅ ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

For the shrimp

✅ 2 lb large shrimp peeled and deveined

✅ Kosher salt


1️⃣ Combine the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Reserve 2 tbsp of the marinade in a separate bowl for later.

2️⃣ Pat the shrimp dry and season with kosher salt. Place the shrimp in a large bowl and pour the marinade all over. Toss to combine.

3️⃣ Cover and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes (do not go longer).

4️⃣ Thread the shrimp on skewers, about 4 large shrimp per skewer. (If using bamboo skewers they need to be soaked in water for at least 30 minutes first).

5️⃣ To grill on an outdoor gas grill. Preheat a gas grill to high. Then, reduce heat to low (temperature should be somewhere between 275 to 325ºF). Carefully grease the cooking grates. Once the grill reaches the recommended temperature, add the shrimp skewers and close the lid. Cook shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until no longer translucent.

6️⃣ To grill on an indoor griddle or cast iron grill. Heat a dry griddle over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp skewers and cook on one side about 3 or 4 minutes. Turn shrimp over and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.

7️⃣ Transfer the grilled shrimp skewers to platter and spoon the remaining marinade your reserved earlier over the grilled shrimp skewers. Add a splash of lemon juice. Serve immediately.
