Grilled Garlic Shrimp

We ushered in the first day of 2021 with a BBQ on the roof top of our apartment building. Its a beautiful day on a hopefully great new year for everyone. I think I served the best grilled shrimps I have tasted ever, the HUGE shrimps are juicy, bouncy (that’s what Hillary says when she tastes a good shrimp) and full of flavors.

May the new year brings lots of health, hope, and joy to everyone.


  • 20 extra large shrimps
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Thaw shrimps overnight in the refrigerator if they are frozen.
  2. Rinse and devein the shrimps, keeping the shell and tail on. I took short cut and bought them already deveined :).
  3. Mix the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and marinade the shrimps for 30 minutes in the refrigerator until ready to grill.
  4. Skewer the shrimps and grill them over medium high heat until the shrimps turn pink and opaque. The length of time for grilling depends on the size of the shrimps. It takes roughly 3 minutes on each side for the shrimps I used. Do not overcook the shrimp or it becomes tough and chewy.
  5. Reserve the marinade and bring to a boil in a small sauce pan. Spoon the boiled marinade over the grilled shrimps and serve these delicious, juicy, and bouncy shrimps.
