Grilled Shrimp.

In an effort for minimal use of the stove during the heatwave we are experiencing we spent the weekend 'grilling out.' I was most excited to have this shrimp. I started with 2 pounds of shrimp (worked well with both pre-cooked and un-cooked shrimp) and marinated them all day.

Threw some foil down on the grill and plopped these babies on there. For the shrimp that was pre-cooked we only kept them on long enough to heat up and get a bit of grill flavor. For the shrimp that was uncooked we kept them on about 10 minutes (5 each side) - or until they are done.

Grilled Shrimp Marinate
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
2 tablespoons parsley
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 teaspoons oregano
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon tastefully simple green tea peppercorn seasoning

So delicious, so easy, and so good!! I need to pick up some more shrimp the next time I am at the grocery store!
