Lemon Herb Grilled Shrimp
- 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
- Zest and juice of 2 lemons
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Lemon wedges, for garnish (optional)
- In a mixing bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped parsley, chopped dill, and olive oil. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
- Thread the peeled and deveined shrimp onto skewers, ensuring they are evenly distributed.
- Brush the lemon herb mixture generously over the shrimp skewers, making sure they are well coated. Allow the shrimp to marinate for about 15-20 minutes in the refrigerator.
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
- Grill the shrimp skewers for approximately 2-3 minutes per side or until they turn pink and opaque. Be cautious not to overcook, as shrimp can become tough if cooked for too long.
- Once grilled to perfection, remove the shrimp from the grill and serve immediately. Garnish with lemon wedges if desired.
- Enjoy the savory and citrusy flavors of your Lemon Herb Grilled Shrimp, a taste of the sea right at home!
