With summer around the corner we decided to bust out to grill and start trying some summer recipes. I believe skewers are a staple in the summer recipe category so I did a search and found this absolutely delicious recipe on http://www.allrecipes.com I wouldn’t change anything about this recipe which is not something that happens often so you know this is a must try. I let them marinate for about 4-6 hours making them extremely flavorful. My two year old picky eater even had one!
Serves: 4 Calories: 336
– 1 tsp ground paprika
– 1 tbsp fresh minced garlic
– 1 tsp Italian seasoning blend
– 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
– 2 tbsp olive oil
– 1/4 tsp ground pepper
– 1 tsp dried basil
– 1 tbsp brown sugar
– 1lb large shrimp
1.) Whisk paprika, garlic, Italia seasoning, lemon juice, olive oil, pepper, basil, and brown sugar together in a bowl until blended. Fold in the shrimp and toss to evenly coat.
2.) Cover and refrigerate for AT LEAST 2 hours. Toss once halfway to coat again.
3.) Remove shrimp from marinade and place on a preheated grill (med/high heat).
4.) Cook, turning once, until opaque in the middle (5-6 minutes approximately)
5.) Serve immediately and enjoy!
