I could eat this shrimp every day for a week. It's healthy, easy, fresh and flavorful. The name of this recipe doesn't do it justice. It really should be called the best shrimp recipe ever but I'll leave that for you to decide. While this shrimp is broiled, you could easily throw this shrimp on the grill. This is a perfect recipe for 4th of July weekend because it takes so little prep, leaving you more time to sit on the beach or make another round of margaritas. I am headed to Hilton Head this weekend for the 4th and couldn't be more excited to relax on the beach with a drink in hand. Hopefully, I can get through a book or two but more importantly I need a tan!
1 lb. medium shrimp, deveined and washed
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1 1/2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 c. dry breadcrumbs + 2 tbsp for sprinkling
In a bowl, combine oil, parsley, garlic and breadcrumbs. Add dry shrimp to the mixture and mix until well coated. Let mixture sit for 1 hour. Remove shrimp from marinade and put on skewers and sprinkle shrimp with additional breadcrumbs. Broil 2 minutes or until golden. Turn skewers over and broil on the other side until golden. Squeeze some fresh lemon on these before serving.
