Easy Lemon-Oil Grilled Shrimp - Great for BBQ

Easy Lemon-Oil Grilled Shrimp - Great for BBQ

This easy and extremely delicious shrimp recipe only requires rubbing the flavoring ingredients into the shrimp and then grilling.
This is a very popular BBQ menu item.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Shrimp (I used 13 cm headless black tiger)
Flavoring Ingredients:
Olive oil
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Garlic (minced or sliced)
1/2 clove
Lemon juice
1 teaspoon
to taste
Basil (fresh or dried)
to taste


1. Lightly rinse the shrimp with water and then drain in a colander.
2. Use a knife to cut the backs. Don't cut all the way through, but cut through the shell from the top.
3. I should also say, the shell is pretty difficult to cut through so be careful not to hurt yourself. If it's too difficult, you can use scissors or even cut the stomach.
4. Place the shrimp and the flavoring ingredients into a baggie. Close the opening of the baggie and rub the flavor into the shrimp well. Let marinate for 1 hour.
5. Heat a frying pan with no oil and dump the shrimp straight from the bag and into the pan.
6. On medium heat, fry one side for 2 minutes and then fry the other side for 2 minutes. If you have it, sprinkle in some basil and quickly stir it in to finish.
7. The combination of the juices from the shrimp and the flavoring ingredients is extremely delicious. When eating these, savor the juices from the shells as well.
8. By the way, I usually serve it on some wakame seaweed and then mix that with the sauce.
