These babies are an excellent side to a grilled steak or an appetizer. They are very easy to prepare and are full of flavor. My kids are “shrimp crazy” and could eat a bushel, I'm sure, by themselves. If you are a crazed shrimp eater like my kids or just love a tasty shrimp from time to time, this is a great grillin’ dish.
Shrimp – 16 - 20 large shrimp, shelled and deveined, tails left on
Olive Oil – ½ cup
Garlic – 3 cloves chopped
Oregano – 1 tablespoon dry
Parsley – 2 tablespoons fresh chopped or 1 tablespoon dry
Red Pepper Flakes – 1 teaspoon
Salt – ¼ teaspoon
Pepper (black) – ¼ teaspoon
How To Make It:
Combine olive oil, garlic, oregano, parsley, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in measuring cup and mix well to make this marinade.
While the shrimp are marinading, take wooden skewers and place in a bowl of water. Presoaking them prevents them from burning on the grill.
Prepare the grill for medium high (350-400 degree) heat.
Remove the shrimps from the marinade and skewer them on the wooden skewers. This makes life easier when you try to flip them on the grill.
Place the shrimps on the grill over direct heat (shrimps directly over the heat source) and grill covered for 2 minutes per side.
Now you are ready to serve and enjoy this fantastic dish!
