Ridiculously Good Grilled Shrimp.
I love this grilled shrimp recipe any day of the week. It is a perfect weeknight meal that is super quick, full of flavour, and easy to make! It is delicious served over salad, rice, pasta, or your favourite grain. Use smaller skewers, for the ultimate appetizer!
Cook’s tip: You may want to make more than the recipe suggests because everyone will love these, and they will disappear quickly!!
- 20-24 Marina Del Rey Wild Argentinian shrimp peeled and deveined (20-30 size)
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 ½ tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 4 metal skewers (or wood skewers soaked)
Dry the shrimp on a paper towel, then sprinkle with freshly ground pepper. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the white balsamic vinegar, garlic, lemon zest & juice, parsley, Sriracha, soy sauce, Dijon mustard, and red pepper flakes, then add the oil in a slow stream while whisking. Add the shrimp and let marinate for 30 minutes.
Preheat grill to high heat.
Thread the shrimp on the skewers (5 or 6 per skewer), set aside. Pour the excess marinade into a small saucepan and gently boil until reduced by half. Turn of the heat and add the honey, then whisk to combine. Let the sauce cool for 5 minutes, then brush both sides of the shrimp with the sauce.
Lower the heat on the grill to medium.
Place the skewers on the grill. Grill on each side for 1 ½ – 2 minutes.
Serve with your favourite summertime salad or over flavoured rice, quinoa, orzo.
** Note: I like to leave the tail on for presentation, but feel free to remove it.
