HERB GRILLED SHRIMP-easy and scrumptious-stonegableblog.comI have such a delicious, easy-peasy main dish recipe for you today! It’s light and filled with tons of flavor! The shrimp is marinated in a great herb based concoction filled with other flavor-infusing ingredients. And the best part is that it takes literally minutes… about 3 … to grill! This is my new go-to dinner when I don’t want to cook! I cooked the shrimp in the picture on my stove top iron griddle but they can also be cooked on the grill! Oh, yummy!

HERB GRILLED SHRIMP-with parmesan flan-stonegableblog.comI served Herb Grilled Shrimp with Parmesan Flan and an Arugula and Asparagus salad.  The Parmesan Flan was another great and easy recipe with such a creamy taste and texture!

Here are a couple of tips to make your shrimp easy to cook and very tasty!

After marinading the shrimp I skewered them and put them on my cast iron griddle!

You can brush a little marinade on the shrimp while they are cooking.

Make sure not to over cook them or they will get tough.

  1. Did you use any garlic?

  2. Thank you for the receip ,I can not wait to try it. I have been looking for one for shrimp.
    Have a blessed day

  3. Thanks for another shrimp idea. I love to make a light shrimp meal when dinner time creeps up on us!

  4. I am so glad you mentioned the grill pan…as living in a city we don’t have a BBQ–want to try your whole menu this week. Just pinned it.

    Thank you!!

  5. These look lovely. I don’t have much luck when I cook shrimp, they turn out rubbery. I must be over cooking them.

    1. Hi Caroline, That is exactly right. They get rubbery if they are overcooked. When they curl up into a ball… they are way overcooked!

  6. Kay Murrell says:

    Sounds great-can’t wait to try them.

  7. How delicious Yvonne! And that Parmesan Flan, yummmmm. I was wondering recently if you were still eating low-carb, and isn’t this the perfect LC dinner! Beautiful also. xoxoxoxo!!

  8. Love the shrimp. We added this to a roast grape tomato and zucchini pasta dish to round it out. It was wonderful. We ended up roasting the shrimp in the oven. Thanks for sharing!

  9. You mean 1\4 of a tsp of pepper vs. 14 tsp….right?

  10. Looks very good and easy. Do you have any tips on peeling and deveining the shrimp? Maybe SG has something new up her sleeve for prepping the shrimp? 🙂
