Whenever summertime comes around, I look forward to making this shrimp recipe on our outdoor grill. I've served this to guests, alongside a nice green salad and a pitcher of margaritas. Simple and delicious. Note: You can try broiling the shrimp in your oven for about 8 minutes instead of grilling but I have never personally tried them that way. Prep time includes marinating in the refrigerator.

Very tasty, this recipe has great flavors and clear directions! I reduced the servings, and marinated for less time because my shrimp were shell off tail on and the lime juice would have cooked them in the written time. I pan grilled as we are out of gas for the BBQ. I said YES to have an onion with it, and served it with a slice of grilled onion for the Southern US Onion Challenge for Culinary Quest 2014 for team Cruisin' Culinary Queens.
- 1⁄3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice

Directions See How It's Made
- Mix together the olive oil, fresh lime juice and seasonings in a bowl.
- Split the shrimp up the back with a sharp knife to allow the marinade to penetrate. Leave the shell on, but try to remove the vein.
- Add the raw shrimp to the marinade and refrigerate, covered, for about two to three hours.
- Remove from the marinade and grill the shrimp for about 4-5 minutes, until done. Make sure not to overcook your shrimp or they will be rubbery.
- *You can also broil the shrimp indoors. It would take about 8 minutes*.
- Serve on a big platter with lime wedges.
- Peel and eat!
