My husband loves this simple shrimp recipe. I marinate shrimp with lots of garlic, olive oil & Old Bay then grill them. They are so tasty, no cocktail sauce is needed! I made this for part of John's birthday dinner this week. Along with a big Porterhouse Steak, my Twice Baked & Over Stuffed Potatoes & a green salad with Homemade Ranch Dressing. He was a happy (and very full) birthday boy!
1 lb Large Shrimp, heads removed, shells on
4-5 Cloves of Garlic, minced
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1 tsp Old Bay (plus additional for serving)
Fresh chopped Parsley, to garnish
These were 21-30 count.
Mince up the garlic. Add the shrimp to a large Ziploc type bag. Add the garlic, olive oil & Old Bay to the bag. Close the top of the bag & distribute the garlic & oil evenly over the shrimp.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, I marinated them for 4 hours this time.
Grill the shrimp over medium- high heat. They will cook quickly, so don't leave them unattended! As soon as they turn pink & start to curl remove them from the grill.
Plate & sprinkle with chopped Parsley to garnish. Serve with Old Bay & a bowl for the shells.
This recipe is for 2 main course servings or 4 appetizers.
