Shrimp is such an easy thing to do on the grill, it's quick, delicious and crowd pleasing. And you don't have to worry about seasoning it up a whole lot, let the shrimp itself, be the star.
- Two pounds of jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- One teaspoon garlic powder
- Juice from half a lemon
- One teaspoon dried parsley flake
- Salt and pepper to taste
- melted garlic butter (for serving)
Put the shrimp in a large ziplock bag. Mix the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the shrimp in the bag. Refrigerate for one hour. When the grill is ready to receive, put the marinated shrimp on metal or water soaked wood or bamboo skewers over direct heat. These cook up rather quickly, about a minute or so on each side or until pink all around with a slight char from the grill. Hit them with the juice from the other half of the lemon, some garlic butter that you melted on the grill while the fish was cooking and serve immediately. Ingredient Option: Add some chili flakes to the garlic butter.
