Found that the 2 hour marinade was too long - it started to cook the shrimp. I only let it go 1 hour. Best grilled shrimp recipe so far.
I BBQ shrimp often using a very similar recipe. The only difference is that I add whole garlic cloves on the skewers between the prawns. I love garlic!
I like the use of lime juice instead of lemon, it gives it a great flavor that's a nice change from the usual lemon juice, plus I had some leftover from making Mojitos. A great multicultural cocktail hour combo. Thank you.
Just had this for supper along with a small bit of BBQ steak. WONDERFUL. I marinated it from partly frozen for about 45 minutes and was afraid the lime juice might cook it too much but it was perfect. Highly recommend this recipe because I think it was my best meal of the year so far. We had it with new potatoes, onions, and carrots from the garden, cooked in foil on the BBQ. I used the largest raw frozen shrimp available and I think that made a difference. BTW the shrimp were already cut and deveined down the back. I took the shells off but left the tail shell for easy handling. So now we are sitting here with garlic butter on our chins and smiling.
This was wonderful! I used the same recipe for my mahi-mahi and it turned out great. I put the fish and shrimp in foil pouches and cooked in the oven. My husband loved the shrimp and the fish. I will cook again! Thanks Bev!
We made this dish last night to go with grilled blacken salmon and classic caesar salad. Loved it! I did add 1 t. red pepper flakes and 1 T. minced parsley to the marinade, which I let the shrimp sit in for 1 and 1/2 hours. Easy recipe-GREAT Flavor! Thanks for posting! Di ;-)
These came out very yummy and easy, I also only marinated for about an hour, cooked on the grill and rather than serve it with garlic butter, I baster it using this garlic butter recipe, #42673. Shrimp were moist and tasty, will make again!
