Grilled Shrimp

We love shrimp. If you don't think you like shrimp, you may change your mind when you make this! SO simple, easy and very few ingredients. Always use raw shrimp for this!

We first had shrimp grilled like this up at Lake Powell with some business friends. Our friend John cooked for us one night and made this and it was love! So thank you John, for introducing us to this amazing recipe. I usually try to spend $2 or less per pound for meat but I do make an exception for the occasional shrimp or fish.

This time we had this wonderful Alaskan shrimp that Rob's mom brought for us. It's so amazing it tastes like mini lobsters. So Rob grilled us up some shrimp! Yummy.

If you don't live in Southern Arizona you may be past the grilling-out season, but we pretty much live in hell so we grill. A lot. So either saute this on the stove or save it for summer.

John Cox's Grilled Shrimp
1 lb raw shrimp, de-veined and peeled

3 garlic cloves minced, divided

juice of 1 lemon, divided

1 Tb olive oil, divided

salt & pepper

Just before grilling toss half of the chopped garlic, olive oil and lemon juice with the shrimp. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Grill until just pink...being careful not to overcook. Once cooked add the other half of all the ingredients and a bit more salt & pepper. Enjoy!

We usually have this with veggies and pasta with homemade pesto sauce.
