|1 lb. large shrimp peeled & deveined|
|1/4 cup olive oil|
|2 Tbsp. lemon juice|
|3/4 tsp. salt|
|1/4 tsp. ground black pepper|
|1 tsp. Italian seasoning|
|2 tsp. minced garlic|
|10-20 bamboo skewers, pre-soaked in water|
Stick it on a stick!
|1.||Place the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic in a resealable plastic bag. Seal and shake to combine.|
|2.||Add the shrimp to the bag and seal. Toss to coat evenly with the marinade.|
|3.||Marinate for at least 15 minutes or up to 2 hours. You don't want to marinate for longer than that, as the acid in the lemon juice will start to cook the shrimp.|
|4.||Thread the shrimp onto skewers. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.|
|5.||Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are pink and opaque.|
|6.||Broiler directions: Preheat the broiler. Place the shrimp skewers on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray. Broil for 2-3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are pink and opaque.|
