Zesty Shrimp

Level: Easy

Total time: 10 mins


-        30 jumbo shrimps (raw)

-        ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil

-        4 tbsp of pure unsalted organic butter

-        2 tbsp salt and freshly ground black pepper

-        2 tbsp fresh minced garlic

-        2 lemons

-        2 tsp fresh parsley

Freshly squeezed organic lemon juice with glass and squeezer


  1. If you have a charcoal grill and chimney starter, remove the top grate of your grill for food and place your chimney inside the grill.
  2. Fill your chimney with hardwood charcoal all the way to the top.
  3. Slide a piece of paper beneath the chimney and light the paper using a match or small lighter through the hole at the bottom.
  4. Wait till charcoal is hot and ready. You’ll know it’s ready when the charcoal starts showing shades of grey. 
  5. Pour your charcoal into the grill and adjust your grill openings to rise into a medium heat of about 250-300 F.
  6. Slightly cut the jumbo shrimps in half vertically (down the long way) while leaving the tail intact.
  7. Place the unsalted organic butter in a bowl and heat the same until the butter melts to a liquid form. (this can be done in a microwave in about 2 min depending on your microwave settings)
  8. Combine the melted butter with the olive oil and fresh minced garlic, and lightly salt the mixture, dash ground black pepper, and stir until everything is blended.
  9.  Lightly brush the butter mixture on the shrimp, coating the same.
  10. Lay shrimp on the grill and wait until they become hot pink (on both sides). 
  11. Remove the shrimp from the grill and place on serving platter. 
  12. Dash fresh parsley over the platter and drizzle fresh lemon juice to your liking.
  13. Enjoy.
