If you're looking for something new to make on the grill, you're going to love this!  All the lemony, garlicky flavors I love in a scampi, but lighter because there's no butter and just a touch of olive oil. After I grill them, I squeeze more lemon over them and top them with a little fresh grated parmesan – SO good!

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large lemons (halved)
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 32 peeled and deveined large shrimp (1 lb)
  • 3 large lemons sliced into 24 very thin rounds (optional)
  • 16 bamboo skewers (soaked in water 1 hour)
  • cooking spray
  • 1 tbsp fresh shredded parmesan

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine the olive oil, juice from 1 1/2 lemons, parsley, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir then add shrimp, tossing to coat. Marinate for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Preheat a gas grill over high heat. Beginning and ending with shrimp, thread the shrimp and folded lemon slices onto 8 pairs of parallel skewers to make 8 kebabs total.
  • Clean and oil the grill grate well to prevent the skewers from sticking. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the shrimp are opaque. Set aside on a platter, squeeze remaining 1/2 lemon over the shrimp and finish with parmesan cheese.
