Shrimp & Lemon Skewers

Posted by  on Wednesday, July 28th, 2010 at 2:29 pm

With summer in full swing, our new grill is also our new favorite accessory. Now, I am not claiming that I have any clue how to even turn the grill on, but I have been a recipient of many wonderful meals it has produced. Steve can keep his title of grill master, and I am perfectly comfortable to help shop and prep, and let him and the grill do the rest.

Here is a sweet little recipe I found that is so simple, but has such serious flavor. Squeeze the grilled lemons over the cooked shrimp to really enhance all that lemon goodness.

Grilled Shrimp and Lemon Skewers recipe: Cooking Light

  • 2  tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1  tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  garlic cloves, minced
  • 32  large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 1/2 pounds) We have also tried doing half scallop and half shrimp, the result is delicious.
  • 32  fresh bay leaves
  • 4  large lemons, each cut into 8 wedges
  • Cooking spray

Prepare grill. Again, not my area of expertise…

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add shrimp; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 10 minutes.

Thread 4 lemon wedges, 4 shrimp, and 4 bay leaves alternately onto each of 8 (10-inch) skewers. Place skewers on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 2 minutes on each side or until shrimp are done.

Delish! Rick is also the grill master and I just the shop and prep girl. Cannot wait for our menu of grillable treats this weekend. I just know Steve will not disappoint!

Looks yummy! I love using skewers-they are so much fun (I need to get a life). Philip is also a grill master, but I am more like his little Spanish dishwasher :)
