“Recipe Of The Week: Lemon-Garlic Marinated Shrimp”

Lemon Garlic Marinated Shrimp

 I am always on the lookout for quick, easy and versatile.  This recipe is very basic and tastes great on its own or can be varied but adding lime or different spices.  Sometimes I use the recipe as a marinade for raw shrimp and then barbecue as a side dish or toss into pasta or salad.  In the summer, the sky is the limit!


3 tbsp minced garlic

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

1/2 tsp pepper

1 pound cooked shrimp

Directions ( one serving…about 4 large shrimp) :

Saute garlic and oil in a small skillet on medium heat  for about 1 minute.  Add lemon juice and parsley.   In a large bowl, toss shrimp with mixture and eat warm or chill until ready to serve.
