Lemon-Garlic Grilled Shrimp

  • 1 lb. large shrimp, shells on
  • Juice of 2 lemons (about ¼ cup juice)
  • 3-5 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ c. canola oil or other high smoke point oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼-½ tsp. crushed red pepper

Place the shrimp in a large, sealable container. Add the remaining ingredients and toss well to coat the shrimp. Allow the shrimp to marinate in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.

Heat your grill to medium heat and place a cast iron griddle over the flames to preheat. When the grill and griddle are hot, place the shrimp on the hot griddle. Close the grill and set a timer for 2 minutes. Flip the shrimp and allow them to cook another 2 minutes before removing them to a serving plate.

  • Yields: 2-3 servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes, plus marinating time
