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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.
