Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 1.5 pounds frozen, raw shrimp, thawed
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Half a lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • Kosher salt (optional)
  • Chopped fresh parsley and lemon wedges for garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  • Shell and devein the shrimp if necessary (some brands of frozen shrimp are already shelled, deveined and ready to use as is). Place the shrimp in a large bowl and add the garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, pepper to taste, and kosher salt (if using) to taste. Toss the shrimp until they are evenly coated with the other ingredients. Marinate the shrimp for about 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the outdoor grill. If preparing the shrimp indoors, coat a grill pan or large sauté pan with oil spray and heat it over medium-high heat. Cook the shrimp until they are pink in color and opaque in the center, turning once. Garnish the shrimp with the parsley and serve with lemon wedges if desired.
