shrimp, heads off and unpeeled
This was great. although i did it a bit different. i used about a half lb of the next size down shrimp without tails. i didnt bother to slice them. i mixed up the ingredients, let them sit in it for a bit then broiled them in the oven. was delicious mixed in with my fettucinni alfredo. will make again. thanx.
I don't know if I did something wrong or what, but I followed this recipe word for word, and when I basted my butter/garlic sauce on the shrimp, the drppings caught fire and ruined the shrimp. They were totally charred and inedible. Too bad, cuz until they went up in a giant shrimp inferno, they smelled pretty good...
This was really good, but I did do a few things differently. I added just a bit of chicken stock and some lemon juice. It made the butter sauce a bit thicker and stick to the shrimp better. It tasted great and I know I will be making this again. Thanks for posting.
Excellent! Quick and simple!
Four stars as written, but I felt it could use the addition of fresh, minced parsley, fresh lemon juice, and salt and pepper. I used all olive oil, no butter, as I marinated the shrimp for about an hour and a half before broiling them for just 2-3 minutes per side. Excellent, light seasoning, perfect for the delicately flavored shrimp. I served this over "Lemony Caesar Salad," also from this site.
Delicious! I added salt and pepper to taste, chopped up some fresh parsley from my garden and let the shrimp marinate for about 30 min. Before grilling I skewered the shrimp, after grilling I poured extra butter/garlic over the shrimp and Voila! happy family :) Thanks Nessy.
Fantastic!--I increased the amount of garlic, coarsely chopped it (versus mincing it) and let the shrimp marinate in it for a little while before grilling.
I DID NOT HAVE OREGANO ON HAND SO I CANT REALLY RATE THIS BUT I MARINATED TINY SHRIMP IN THIS AND THEN PUT THE SHRIMP ON TIN FOIL AND THEN ONTO THE BARBEQUE. YUM.... YOU GOTTA TRY IT!!!

Grilling marinated shrimp makes a fast, flavorful main dish.
This tangy marinade makes the shrimp both moist and flavorful.
These easy shrimp have lots of flavor and a great little “kick.”
