"Shrimp marinated in lemon, garlic, and parsley for 30 minutes, then grilled. Can be used as an appetizer or main dish. This recipe also works well with scallops." — Holly Murphy

chopped fresh parsley
ground black pepper to taste
crushed red pepper flakes to taste
1 1/2 pounds
medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
These were tasty. My husband really liked them. I do have a suggestion if anyone would like to try it and that's add half oil and half butter and about 1/4 cup parm cheese. Place marinade in blender then marinate. The butter mixture will cling to the shrimp and give it more flavor while its cooking.
This was just okay to me. Not Great but not bad.. To me, it needed some more flavor
A definite favorite!! The marinade is so easy to prepare and can be done ahead of time. Instead of making kabobs, we used a grilling basket and cooked shrimp on the grill til it turned pink. Served over linguini with the following sauce: Saute together 1 stick butter, juice of 1 lemon, 1 T minced garlic, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1 T (or more to taste) red pepper flakes and a spash of white wine. Simply delicious!!!!!
My family absolutley goes crazy when I make this recipe. I follow the recipe exactly and it turns out incredible. I serve the shrimp with pasta that I toss with olive oil, garlic, salt, parmesan, italian seasoning and red pepper flakes. It is delicious :)
Great recipe!! Just tried a few changes - instead of marinating seperately first skewer - try adding mushrooms and scallops - add to a large ziploc freezer bag (just remember to cut the sharp tips off the skewers). Then add marinade to ziploc bag. Try rolling in a mixture of italian bread crumbs and parmasan cheese(50/50 mix) then grill on a George Forman grill.Then drizzle with garlic butter(it just melted in your mouth). The mushrooms are awesome and makes the kabobs look bigger. Makes the shrimp and scallops go further. If the mushrooms are large, cut in half.
My husband couldn't get enough of this dish! I made a double batch of the marinade and set aside half to coat the pasta; I then marinated pre-cooked shrimp using my FoodSaver for about 45 minutes. I grilled the shrimp on the Foreman grill (lined with foil for easy clean-up) and tossed the shrimp and marinade together with whole-wheat linguine. The family loved it (although the kids didn't care for the red pepper flakes) and husband commented that it was the best shrimp & pasta he'd ever had.
Since there was only the two of us, hubby just stuck these under the broiler. Delicately seasoned, light, fresh and flavorful. So refreshing to find a shrimp dish not heavily sauced or seasoned. Perfect.
I really can't rave enough about how good this was. Easy too! I only had frozen precooked jumbo shrimp. I defrosted it, marinated it and then grilled it for just a couple of minutes on each side. This was so good that even my husband (the cocktail sauce guy) ate it without sauce. I highly recommend this one if you're looking for something simple, different and tasty to grill.
