Easy Grilled Lemon Garlic Shrimp
This is so easy and so tasty to enjoy at a barbecue.
I actually like to make this on my indoor grill.
As much as I enjoy grilled shrimp made the traditional way, on the outdoor grill, sometimes, the weather does not want to cooperate. An indoor grill allows me to enjoy meals, such as grilled shrimp, any time of the year.
Lemon and garlic make for such a delicious duo.
When combined together, lemon and garlic are kind of like a Yin and Yang in the way that they compliment one another even though they have little in common. Lemons give us that tangy and often sweet taste that seems to hit us on the top of the mouth. When the taste of lemon comes off of the grill, that tangy and often sweet taste seems to spread all over the mouth.
Garlic adds that polar attraction to the lemon.
When the lemon gives us that tangy taste, the garlic comes back and grounds us. When garlic is grilled, it brings us a nutty taste that we enjoy.
What kind of shrimp is best for this recipe?
If you are using skewers jumbo shrimp probably works best. It’s really a size thing as the large the shrimp, the easier it is to keep on that skewer. Jumbo shrimp on a skewer also makes for a great presentation especially when you are cooking for a crowd to impress.
Preparing the shrimp has something to do with how you plan to serve this.
If you are planning to make your grilled shrimp and serve it on a skewer, you will need to peel and de-vein it. The tails can stay on the shrimp. If you are making this more like an appetizer that people can basically suck the shrimp from the shell- the messy but, still just as tasty way to enjoy garlic shrimp, you can keep the shell on. To dev-vein shrimp in the shell, simply snip the back of the shrimp using a paring knife or scissors and remove the vein.
