Shrimp marinated in lemon, garlic, and parsley for 30 minutes, then grilled. Can be used as an appetizer or main dish. This recipe also works well with scallops.

Wow! I would have been happy paying for this dish at a restaurant! Used Colossal shrimp (12/lb), garlic paste and skipped the red pepper. Oh, my-my-my was this tasty! Even at $13/lb for the Colossals, I will be making this regularly. It was just too good!
