Grilled Herb Shrimp ~ Barefoot Bloggers

Grilled Herb Shrimp
Toss the ingredients together, marinate for an hour, skewer and grill for 1 1/2 minutes on each side! What could be easier ~ with a depth of flavor that rivals your favorite seafood restaurant!

Since I used my George Foreman Grill, I cut each wooden skewer in half and threaded three shrimp on each. I spooned on all of the onion and herbs from the marinade as I placed the shrimp onto the grill. I didn't want to lose a bit of flavor. Even the bits of onion were sweet and delicious. Total grilling time: 1.5 minutes.
Grilled Herb Shrimp
2001, Barefoot Contessa Parties!

  • 2 pounds large shrimp (16 to 20 per pound), peeled and deveined (see note)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, small-diced
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup good olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced


Combine all the ingredients and allow them to marinate for 1 hour at room temperature or cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
Skewer the shrimp. I use 3 or 4 shrimp on a 12-inch skewer for dinner. Heat a grill with coals and brush the grill with oil to prevent the shrimp from sticking. Grill the shrimp for only 1 1/2 minutes on each side.
Note: I leave the tails on when I'm peeling the shrimp.

Oh wow! I hate shrimp, but this looks yummy. I wouldn't be able to eat it. I sure can make it for my hubby though. He would die of a heart attack if he came home from work to eat this.

That looks amazing! I love shrimp! I find them very versatile, saute them, boil them, grill them, puree them, lol! Grilling them is of course my favorite! I really think that you can taste its meat's flavor more distinctly when cooked that way.
