Rosemary Shrimp Skewers


2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary

1 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

24 large (21/25 count) shrimp, peeled and deveined

lemon wedges for serving


  1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat.
  2. Mix the oil, lemon juice, garlic, rosemary, oregano, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl or large Ziploc bag.
  3. Add the shrimp and toss well to coat. Refrigerate for up to 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, letting it cling to the shrimp.
  5. Thread the shrimp onto the skewers. (Soak wooden skewers for at least 30 minutes beforehand.)
  6. Place the shrimp on the grill and close the grill lid. Grill, with the lid closed as much as possible, turning occasionally, until the shrimp are opaque, about 5 minutes.
  7. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
