Why I Love This Recipe

This is one of my favorite warm-weather dishes. It's quick, easy, and very light. I usually serve it on a bed of brown rice and pineapple-corn relish (see separate entry for relish recipe)

Feel free to use smaller shrimp if you like - when I use small shrimp, I'll put them on a piece of foil on my grill instead of threading through skewers.

Just double the amount of shrimp if you plan on using the smaller kind.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp lemon zest
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 tsp chili powder
16 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined


For marinade:

Combine ingredients in a large freezer bag; shake for 1 minute.

Refrigerate 1 hour.

Skewer shrimp and grill over medium-high heat (or broil) until pink (about 2-3 minutes per side).
