Citrus Grilled Shrimp

by Melissa on July 13, 2010

It’s summer, and that means sangria, watermelon and summer BBQs.  We hosted a BBQ at our little home in the ‘burbs this past weekend and I got to test my hand out at grilling shrimp.  It’s a great, simple recipe if you’re looking for alternative to your typical burgers and dogs.

Ingredients (makes 8-10 servings):
– 2 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
– 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 3 limes)
– 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
– 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
– 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
– 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
– 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
– 2 cloves minced fresh garlic
– a pinch of salt
– a pinch of pepper

Let’s Cook!
1. Combine lime juice, olive oil, red vinegar, parsley, basil, salt, pepper, garlic, and crushed red pepper in a large bowl; mix well.

2. Add shrimp to the bowl and coat the shrimp well with the mixture.

3. Cover the bowl let the shrimp marinate in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
4. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
5. Place shrimp in a grill basket, and grill for 5 to 6 minutes. Be sure to stir regularly while cooking
