Lemon Fried Shrimp With Marjoram

Lemon Fried Shrimp With Marjoram created by David04

The shrimp picks up such a delicious flavor from soaking in the marinade and being cooked in its own shell. These can also be done over a grill instead of frying. My family had fun peeling and eating these until they all were gone...... The calorie and fat content are not as high as the nutritional facts show because you discard most of the marinade, which contains most of the calories and fat.

    Although I don't usually serve shrimp often, we do like it & over the past month we seem to have gotten more than our usual share of it! Recipes like this are the reason ~ We thoroughly enjoyed it! I did cut way back on the amount of salt & actually used a no-salt substitute! Also used lemon pepper instead of the usual pepper! The 2 of us certainly agree that this is a recipe I must make again sometime! Thanks for posting it! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block tag]
