Grilled Shrimp

If you’re too busy to cook or it’s too hot to turn on the oven then I’ve got a delicious and easy grilled shrimp recipe for you.  If you don’t have a grill then you can quickly sauté the shrimp.  The secret is all in the marinade.


1 Pound Uncooked Shrimp

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro

3 Minced Garlic Cloves

Juice of 1 Lime

Juice of 1 Lemon

1 Cup White Wine

Zest of 1 Lime

1/8 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/8Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

In a small mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  Pour into a ziplock storage bag.  Make sure the shrimp is deveined.  Place the uncooked shrimp into the ziplock bag.  Let marinate for 10 minutes only.  If you leave the shrimp in for longer the acid from the lemon and lime with “cook” the shrimp.  Prepare your grill to medium hot. Cook for 3 minutes on each side.  Remove from the grill and transfer to a serving platter.  Serve immediately.  Serve with a salad and rice.  Serves 2
