Grilled Shrimp Scampi

This is a great summer recipe for when you don't want to heat up your house.  I added tomatoes to my skewers for a little different twist.  You can just use shrimp if you want. I served the skewers atop a bed of lettuce and made a great shrimp salad. 

Grilled Shrimp Scampi Skewers

1/4 C. olive oil
1/4 C. lime or lemon juice (I use lemon)
3 Tbs. chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 Tbs. minced garlic
Ground black pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 1/2 lb. raw, cleaned, shelled shrimp

In a plastic or glass bowl, combine the olive oil, lime or lemon juice, parsley, oregano, garlic, black pepper and crushed red pepper. Stir in the shrimp and marinate for 20-30 minutes. Preheat grill. Remove shrimp from the marinade, and thread onto skewers alternating with tomatoes. If using the wooden skewers. make sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before use.

Grill for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until done.Pin It
