Lemon Grilled Shrimp
1 1/4 pounds large shrimp (I like to get them peeled and clean so as not to deal with the mess and extra work)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic (garlic powder will work if you don't have fresh garlic)
1 tablespoon each fresh chopped rosemary and thyme (or a few shakes of ground rosemary/thyme)
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1. Combine lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and herbs together in a resealable bag. Add shrimp and mix well. Place in the refrigerator for about 1 hour (make sure to turn it over halfway through as your mixture probably won't cover all of the shrimp entirely).
2. Grill over high heat on the BBQ or in a grill pan, about 3 minutes per side.
I like to serve these over salad for lunch or over pasta for dinner.
