Best Grilled Marinated Shrimp Recipe
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup (80ml) dry white wine
- 1/3 cup (80 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3/4 cup (180 ml) olive oil
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemery leaves
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
- 1/4 cup finely chopped basil
- 2 pounds (960 g) shrimp, shlled and deveined
- salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a large bowl, combine the shallots, garlic, mustard, wine, lemon juice, oil, rosemary, parsley, basil, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Add the shrimp and stir to blend. Refrigerate and let stand a minimum of 2 hours.
When ready to cook, preheat a cleaned,well-scrubbed outdoor grill to high. Brush the grill lightly with oil. Arrange an equal number of the shrimp-perhaps 7 or 8-on 4 skewers. Arrange them so that they will lie flat and touching when placed on the grill.
Place the skewered shrimp on the grill and cook 1½ to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp can be lifted from the grill without sticking. Turn the shrimp and cook them 1½-to 2 minutes, or until done. Remove grilled shrimp from the skewers and arrange them, edges slightly overlapping, on each of 4 plates. Serve grilled shrimp with lemon wedges or, if you wish, with beurre blanc, or white sauce, spooned over.
