This recipie was in the local newspaper last week and it looked so good I had to try it. It's Great! The melding of lemon, oregano, garlic and olive oil can't be beat when applied to shrimp on the BBQ.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put all ingredients (except the dressing) in a large bowl and marinate for 15 - 20 minutes.
  2. Thread shrimp on metal skewers ( or well soaked bamboo) and grill for 5-6 minutes turning often (they will turn red and opaque when done).
  3. Serve over rice (or better yet pilaf) with lemon wedges, pitted black olives and cherry tomatoes and drizzle with the dressing.

I have made this shrimp at least 20 times because I get rave reviews from everyone who tries it! I don't adjust anything in the recipe except I use more garlic and for the dressing its too salty for me so I use half of the required amount. I let my shrimp marinate all day and its amazing on rice! Unless the shrimp gets a little dry, you really don't need the dressing unless you are putting over rice and its really nice to drizzle a bit over it. It would be nice on a salad too with the shrimp. Its a top request any time I'm entertaining!
