Then I made this shrimp. . . and I was on another level. Seriously the best shrimp I have ever made. I don't want to be one of those people who ruin a movie when they say "this is the funniest movie ever- I was crying laughing!". You then proceed to enter the theater expecting to be LOLing the whole time, only to be disappointed because you were just chuckling. (Thanks ticket taker man- I have still not forgotten you) But just take my word for it- this shrimp is amazing. I have made it many times, for various people and their reaction is the same: oh yum, mmmm, wow. If you are ready for a similar reaction, get your shrimp and skewers ready. You are in for a treat!
Fresh Amazing Shrimp
1 cup olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 lemon, juiced
2 tbsp hot pepper sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails attached
In a mixing bowl combine oil, parsley, lemon juice, hot sauce, garlic, tomato paste, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir until combined. Reserve a small amount of this mixture for basting later. In a Ziploc bag combine the rest of the mixture and shrimp. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
Soak skewers in water for at least 15 minutes before using them so they don't burn up on the grill.
Preheat grill on a medium-low heat.
Thread shrimp onto skewers. Pierce the end near the tail and the other end near the head. (As shown on picture below) Discard marinade and Ziploc bag.
BBQ shrimp for 3-5 minutes per side, until opaque. Be sure to frequently baste as you are grilling with the reserved marinade.
Serve and enjoy!
