Garlic and Herb Shrimp Skewers

Garlic and Herb Shrimp Skewers

We went camping on the Oregon coast for Mother’s Day and all that sea air made me have a serious craving for seafood.  I had shrimp in the freezer so I decided to make some garlic and herb shrimp skewers that I found on Culinary Cory.  I marinated them for 2 hours and grilled them up in a grill pan because it was quicker and easier for me.  They turned out excellent!  The shrimp had great flavor, they were super tender, and delicious!  My daughter liked them a lot and my son LOVED them–he ended up eating 4 skewers!  My husband and I both agreed they were tasty.

How to Make Garlic and Herb Shrimp Skewers

Combine the olive oil, parsley, basil, garlic, shallot, Dijon mustard, dry mustard, lemon juice, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a large zip lock bag. Seal and shake well to combine.

Soak the skewers in water for a few minutes. Spear the shrimp with the tail pointing in the same direction, four shrimp per skewer.

Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Add the skewers once the pan is HOT. Cook for 2-3 minutes then flip for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the skillet and place on the serving dish. Repeat the cooking process with the rest of the skewers. Serve with extra lemon juice on the side if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. Camping at the Oregon coast…what a lovely way to spend Mother’s Day! These shrimp skewers look delicious. If only I weren’t allergic to shrimp! 🙁

  2. Another recipe that I am going to try – SOON!! They will be on the bbq this Victoria Day weekend.

  3. Sounds like a fun mother’s day! (if you’re into camping…)

    I totally need to convince my dad to make these the next time I’m over. A welcome break from having to smell his bbq chicken on a stick made with high fructose corn syrup-infused bbq sauce.

  4. This looks like something we would really enjoy, and shrimp cook so quickly for a nice weeknight meal. Will have to try this one soon!

  5. Fantastic, Pam! That marinade is spot on for shrimp.

    Four skewers? Are you sure your son isn’t part redfish or catfish?
