Grilled Herb Shrimp
Prep Time: 15 min
1 Leanest protein
2 healthy fats
Ingredients 3 3/4 pounds large shrimp (16 to 20 per pound), peeled and deveined (see note) – 6 servings
3 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 cup yellow onion, small-diced 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley 1/4 cup minced fresh basil 1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1 teaspoons kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/4 cup good olive oil 4 teaspoons lemon, juiced
Combine all the ingredients and allow them to marinate for 1 hour at room temperature or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
Skewer the shrimp. I use 3 or 4 shrimp on a 12-inch skewer for dinner. Heat a grill with coals and brush the grill with oil to prevent the shrimp from sticking. Grill the shrimp for only 1 1/2 minutes on each side.
Note: I leave the tails on when I’m peeling the shrimp.
