How to Make Herb Marinated Shrimp

Step-by-Step

  1. Start by pre-soaking your wooden skewers. If using metal or broiling you can skip this obviously...
  2. Combine first five ingredients in food processor; pulse until mixture is coarsely chopped.
  3. Add olive oil and process until well blended.
  4. Combine herb mixture and shrimp in a large zip lock bag and toss to coat.
  5. Marinate shrimp in fridge for 30 minutes. Marinating any longer than 1 hr. can result in rubbery shrimp.
  6. Go and pre-heat your grill, use upper rack if you have one. If broiling go ahead and start pre-heating your oven.
  7. Remove shrimp from bag and thread onto skewers, you should have at least 6 shrimp to a skewer.
  8. Place skewers on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill three minutes on each side or until done. Make sure and DO NOT over cook, or you will have dry, chewy shrimp.
  9. I like to serve these with flavored rice and a salad. Enjoy !

Five Ways To Use Your Extra Thanksgiving Turkey


While my Thanksgiving dinner may be smaller this year, I am still going to roast my usual-sized turkey. It’s just as easy to roast one that’s big or one that’s small. By roasting a larger one, I guarantee leftovers. They’re my favorite and I love to turn the turkey into a completely different dish. “I […]
