Herbed Shrimp

Today’s recipe is one I served at our recent Dinner Party.  It was a great compliment to the Fast Fire Flank Steak and the rest of the meal.

I am not a huge seafood fan.  I’m generally a fish and chips kind of girl.

The only seafood I ever cook is shrimp.  This recipe is another fun and easy way to use some of those fresh herbs you may have growing in your garden.

If you haven’t ever bought shrimp before it comes in different sizes.  This recipe uses jumbo shrimp which means there are 16-20 per pound.  You can use fresh or frozen, either will work.  I used frozen shrimp I bought at Costco.

The shrimp is marinated prior to grilling for 1-2 hours at room temperature or cover and refrigerate for up to two days.

I skewered the shrimp for easier grilling.  I forgot to soak my bamboo skewers ahead of time so they got a little burnt!

Shrimp cooks quickly so keep an eye on it – only a couple of minutes per side.
