  1. Combine olive oil, Italian seasoning, paprika, lemon rind, salt, pepper, and garlic.
  2. Add shrimp and toss to coat.
  3. Thread the shrimp onto 4 skewers.
  4. The original recipe calls for broiling these on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray (2 minutes on each side), however, I prefer to grill them over medium heat until they turn pink (2 to 4 minutes per side).
  5. Remove the shrimp from the skewers and arrange over the hot pasta.
  6. Drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with parsley.

Really really good. I made this for my boyfriend and father. The first words out of my boyfriend's mouth were, "Omg. This is the best shrimp you've ever made." I chose to grill them as well. My father (a man of few words) said, "Very tasty". I personally loved the shrimp. The pasta with only the lemon juice and parsley seemed a little dry but you could use this shrimp on top of anything. Loved it.

This is good and very quick and easy to make. The shrimp turned a nice dark pink and it was perfect tossed with the pasta. Everyone liked it. DD especially liked the shrimp. I didn't have Italian seasoning so I used a comination of basil, thyme and oregano.

Very easy to make, enjoyed by all. We grilled them and served with it with Lemon Spaghetti With Parmesan #168660 just like Sugarpea. Very tasty and great for Barbq's will become a regular at ours.
