1 large garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon cayenne
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 ½ lb large shrimp, peeled, deveined, rinsed, and drained
Freshly sliced lemons, for garnish
– In a medium bowl, mix garlic, salt, paprika, and cayenne. Add oil and lemon juice; mix to form a paste. Add shrimp, cover, and marinate for 2 hours.
– Preheat grill to high heat. Remove shrimp from marinade and place on grill; cook 2 minutes per side, until shrimp turn pink. Serve as an appetizer, garnished with plenty of fresh lemon slices.
– Grilled shrimp are perfect alongside a simple grain pilaf, tossed salad, and glass of wine. Enjoy your favorite red or white as long as it is light enough to complement the gentle flavors of the shrimp.
