Garlic Grilled Shrimp Skewers

How to make Garlic Grilled Shrimp Skewers.


  • 1 lb large shrimp
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper, adjust to spice preference


  1. Add the olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, garlic and spices to a small mixing bowl and whisk together.
  2. Place the shrimp in a bowl and pour 3/4 of the marinade on top of the shrimp.
  3. Mix together gently until the shrimp are well coated.
  4. Cover the bowl and marinate the shrimp for 30 minutes to an hour.
  5. Thread the shrimp on the skewers and make sure to get all the good garlic and herbs from the bowl and spread on to the shrimp.
  6. Heat a grill or grill pan on medium high heat.
  7. Once the grill is hot, place the shrimp skewers on the grill and cook the shrimp for 2-3 minutes each side, or until they turn pink and opaque.
  8. Remove the shrimp to a plate and spoon the remaining marinade on top before serving.
