Lemon-Garlic Marinated Shrimp (Ice Cold and Refreshing)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

I found this recipe on the Eating Well website amongst the diabetic friendly recipes. It's supposed to be an appetizer but I served it over a nice salad as a cool, refreshing summer dinner. We loved it. The shrimp are super simple to prepare and they tasted great hot or cold although they are meant to be served cold. Serves 12 as an appy but 6 as a main course.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place garlic and oil in a small skillet and cook over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper. Toss with shrimp in a large bowl. Chill until ready to serve.

Needed an appy for girls night out but it had to sit in the car for a few hours while we did the bar scene. An excellent cold shrimp appy....some may find it a tad strong on the garlicky taste but we enjoyed it. So glad it was already posted as I wanted to save it on Zaar

This shrimp appie is very good. I prepared it for a family gathering and doubled the recipe and there were no leftovers. The only thing I would do differently next time is to add some lemon zest to intensify the lemon flavour. Made for PRMR Tag.
