  • Author: Bobby


  • 2lbs raw large shrimp (peeled and deveined, with tails attached)
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley (chopped)
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Skewers


  1. In a medium bowl mix together olive oil, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, hot pepper sauce, tomato paste, oregano, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Reserve a small amount of the marinade for basting while grilling.
  3. Pour the remaining marinade into a large sealable plastic bag and add shrimp tossing to coat. Place into the refrigerator and allow shrimp to marinade for 2 hours.
  4. After 2 hours, lightly grease and pre-heat your grill to medium-low heat. Thread shrimp onto skewers, piercing once near the tail and once near the head. Discard the marinade.
  5. Add shrimp to the grill and cook about 5 minutes per side or until opaque. While shrimp are cooking baste them frequently with the reserved marinade.
