I got this recipe from my aunt years ago so I am not sure of it's original origin. I do know that this is the only way I will prepare shrimp now though. You can play around with the spices to make this as spicy or not spicy as you want. Both the grill method and oven turn out great. Enjoy!
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons parsley
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 lb shrimp
- Mix first seven ingredients in a large bowl or resealable storage bag. Add shrimp and toss with marinade. Cover and refridgerate for several hours or overnight.
- Grill Method: Preheat grill to 450 degrees. Place shrimp on scewers or place in grill basket. Turn while cooking. Cook until no longer transparent.
- Oven Method: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place shrimp in 9x13 pan with a little of the marinade. Cook 7-10 minutes, turning once.
Made for Spring PAC 2012 and DH and I found this to be quite tasty! I fixed in in a grill pan on the stove and followed the instructions. I let it marinade for half a day and serve this with rice and a green salad. Thank you for submitting.
