Grilled Shrimp Skewers • Seafood Nutrition Partnership


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.

Grilled shrimp skewers are sure to be a favorite to top anything from tacos to pasta and salad to sandwiches! These grilled shrimp skewers are a quick 20-minute meal, flavored with garlic, lemon, and herbs.
