Shrimp is so fast and easy to grill! When they’re hot from the grill, I brush grilled shrimp with melted butter and lemon juice, then sprinkle them with Italian parsley. Delicious! This dish literally takes five minutes to make so be sure to have your other sides ready to go before grilling your shrimp.
You can serve them still on the skewers for an elegant presentation. I also love grilled shrimp in pasta salad. Try my Grilled Shrimp and Veggie Orzo Pasta Salad!
1.25 lbs peeled, deveined, raw shrimp (tales on)
2 tsp olive oil
1 Tbsp butter, melted
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
- Toss shrimp with olive oil and salt. Gently thread onto well-soaked wooden skewers. (The skewers will catch on fire if they haven’t been soaked in water for hours.)
- Grill about five minutes, turning once, or until shrimp turns pink.
- Whisk together 1 Tbsp melted butter and the juice of half a lemon. Remove shrimp from grill and brush both sides with lemon-butter. Immediately sprinkle with chopped parsley.
