Grilled Shrimp

Grilled Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 2lb Shrimp (Large or Jumbo)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
  • 1 Whole Lemon (Juiced)
  • ⅓ cup Olive Oil
  • ½ teaspoon Salt and Pepper (To personal taste)

Optional

  • 1 tablespoon Tony Chachere’s Spice

Directions

Prepare your grill ahead of time to give your coals time to burn down a little bit, I don't like a real hot grill. You will be marinating for at least three hours so don't start you until one hour before.
Peel and devein shrimp and put in plastic or glass bowl.
Add garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper, and optional spice and mix. Marinate for at least 3 hours. If you are using wooden skewers be sure to soak them for a couple of hours to keep them from burning.
Skewer shrimp and cook for 5 minutes a side or until nice and pink. Don't over cook or they will be tough as boot leather. Serve with grilled vegetables or salad.
