June 23 - Grilled Marinated Shrimp

I decided to marinate some shrimp for dinner to do a scampi, but I had a big lunch and the thought of pasta (especially before my Wednesday night Zumba workout!) was just too much. I decided to toss mine on a salad, but I made the pasta for the boy, Linds and Luke. It was really easy to throw together and everyone loved it!

Grilled Marinated Shrimp
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon minced garlic
ground black pepper to taste
crushed red pepper flakes to taste (optional)
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  1. In a large, non-reactive bowl, stir together the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, and black pepper. Season with crushed red pepper, if desired. Add shrimp, and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat. Thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head. Discard any remaining marinade.
  3. Lightly oil grill grate. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque.
