Makes 6 servings
Ingredients: 1 pound (480 g) raw shrimp, peeled and deveined, 3 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced, 2 tablespoons (30 ml) extra-virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup (60 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon each: kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, paprika, 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro, bamboo skewers soaked in water
For Dipping Sauce: 1/2 cup (125 ml) Plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon each: garlic and onion powders, 1/4 teaspoon each: kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, 2 tablespoons each: fresh Italian parsley, chopped chives, and freshly squeezed lime juice
Instructions: In a medium mixing bowl, combine olive oil, lime juice, salt, black pepper, and paprika. Whisk well and set aside.
Thread shrimp onto soaked bamboo skewers, about 5-6 shrimp per skewer. Place shrimp skewers on a plate and pour the marinade over.
To Grill Shrimp: Lightly grease with oil or nonstick cooking spray grates of a grill and set to medium heat. Add shrimp skewers to the preheated grill and cook for about 2 minutes per side, basting occasionally with some extra marinade.
Turn off the grill. Remove grilled shrimp from the grill and transfer to a serving plate. Serve hot.
You can also roast shrimp in an oven. To Roast in the Oven:
Preheat the oven to 450º F (225º C). Arrange shrimp skewers on a lightly greased baking sheet. Roast in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes or until pink and opaque. Turn off the oven and remove roasted shrimp. Transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro. Serve immediately.
