This shrimp marinade packs a huge punch of flavor and is made with ingredients that you can probably already find in your house! They have the perfect amount of tang and just a hint of spice! You can grill these shrimp (my favorite) or you can bake them, or sauté them in a skillet.
Shrimp is something that I actually tend to make quite a bit. They cook so quickly, it’s a light meal, and if they’re frozen, they only take a few minutes to thaw out. I actually cooked these on my George Foreman grill. So much easier than actually getting the big grill out!
- 1 lb raw shrimp (peeled)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 3 large garlic cloves (minced finely)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp chopped parsley
- 2 tsp hot sauce (or more if you like more spice)
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
Add all ingredients to a bowl with the shrimp and stir to combine.
Refrigerate no longer than 30 minutes or the shrimp can get tough.
If you're planning to use wooden skewers, soak them in water while the shrimp marinade so they won't burn on the grill
Grill for about 2 minutes on each side.
If you're baking them, heat your oven to 400 and bake for about 8-10 minutes.
