Ingredients and Method



  1. PREP MARINADE: Add the olive oil, cilantro, garlic and lime juice to a small mixing bowl and whisk together, season to taste. Add the jalapeño if you like a little kick.
  2. BUILD THE SKEWERS: I like to go with 4-5 shrimp per skewer. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Thread the shrimp on the skewers. Place the skewers on a tray, working with half the marinated coat the skewers. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. GRILL SHRIMP SKEWERS: Place the shrimp skewers on the grill, cook for 1-2 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
  4. SERVE: Remove the shrimp to a plate and spoon some of the marinade on top before serving. Garnish with some fresh cilantro leaves, lime wedges and jalapeño rings. A fresh chimichurri and a crusty grilled baguette will make it a meal!
