Shrimp Salad

Grilled shrimp is a versatile protein that most home cooks have their own spin on. Grilled shrimp can be added to quesadillas, salads, stir-fries, pasta, or enjoyed by themselves (preferably with some cocktail sauce loaded with horseradish). Today, I am sharing my take on this classic.

To make these grilled shrimp you will need:

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

3 lemons

1 tbsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp sriracha

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

To make the marinade, add the extra virgin olive oil to a gallon Ziploc bag. Zest the 3 lemons and add to the marinade.

Add shrimp and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then, load shrimp onto metal skewers or into a grilling basket, like the one pictured below. Squeeze the juice from the three lemons onto the shrimp.Grill until opaque.
