Grilled Lemon Garlic Shrimp Kabobs Recipe

This recipe will make 4 servings and is the perfect summer grilling recipe! If you are not a big fan of garlic, you can certainly omit that from this recipe.

Grilled Lemon Garlic Shrimp Kabobs Recipe


1 1/2 lbs. large uncooked fresh shrimps, peeled
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
4 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 1/4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons of butter
1 clove garlic, finely chopped or minced

In a large bowl, combine the parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Stir in the peeled shrimp, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Stir in the olive oil and finely chopped garlic and simmer for an additional 1 1/2 minutes over low heat. Remove the shrimp from the refrigerator and stir them into the garlic sauce until they are well coated.

Separate the shrimp into four even piles. Using long grilling skewers, place the shrimps onto the skewers until they are almost full.

Grill the kabobs on your hot preheated grill for 7 to 10 minutes, turning them over every 2 minutes. Approximately 5 minutes into your grilling time, brush the kabobs with the remaining garlic butter sauce. They will be done cooking once the shrimps turn pink. Remove them from the skewers before serving.
