Grilled Lemon Shrimp

Grilled Lemon Shrimp

This is too easy to be so good.

One pound of U-20 cooked, peeled and de-veined shrimp.

You can use raw shrimp but make sure they are peeled, and de-veined.

The cooked shrimp was on sale for a great price so I couldn’t resist a bargain.


One clove of minced garlic

Six tablespoons of olive oil

The juice of half a big lemon plus the zest

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

1/2 teaspoon brown sugar

Mix everything together in a blender and pour over the shrimp.

Marinate the cooked shrimp in the marinade for about 1/2 an hour

Preheat the grill to high

Put the shrimp on skewers and grill for about one to two minutes per side.

Serve with a tossed salad, brown rice and a vegetable.

This marinade can also be used for chicken or pork.
