One of my favorite shrimp dishes to order at Red Lobster is the garlic-grilled shrimp. This recipe consists of shrimp skewers that are brushed with a buttery garlic glaze. The glaze is used both as a marinade and for brushing while the shrimp are being grilled. The glaze is gets a lot of flavor from garlic, butter, and lemon juice. For this recipe I would recommend using at least large shrimp. You can serve this shrimp with wild rice on the side. Make sure if you are using wooden skewers to soak them in cold water for several hours so that they do not catch fire on the grill. Enjoy.
- 2lbs raw shrimp (peeled and deveined)
- 4 wooden skewers (soaked in cold water)
- 2 garlic cloves (minced)
- 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
- ½ cup butter
- Juice of 3 lemons
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes.
- Remove from heat. Add lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Allow the sauce to cool. Reserve half of the sauce in a bowl for brushing.
- Mix the renaming half of the sauce with the raw shrimp and marinate for 30 minutes. Thread the shrimp onto the wooden skewers.
- Heat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Place the shrimp skewers onto the grill and cook while brushing with the reserved marinade for 2-3 minutes per side or until the shrimp are pink.
