Kickin’ Lemon and Garlic Grilled Shrimp

[the_ad id="264678"]

Putting together a spectacular appetizer doesn’t have to take hours in the kitchen.

We love to make and serve this simple and elegant shrimp cocktail platter at any occasion. The flavor of the perfectly seasoned shrimp along with a homemade shrimp cocktail sauce will delight your guests. Use your imagination and garnish with a few fresh sprigs of parsley and lemon slices for an unforgettable presentation.

Can I prep this ahead?

Yes, follow the prep instructions (stop just before grilling), cover shrimp and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Remove from fridge and grill!

Some ways to “reinvent” your leftover shrimp:

  • Wrap
  • Tacos
  • Fajitas: With sautéed onions, green peppers and tomatoes
  • Quesadillas: Topped with fresh pico de gallo
  • Pasta dish: Mix shrimp with cooked pasta, bell peppers, wilted spinach and Pesto Sauce
  • Pizza: Topped with cheese, veggies and shrimp (using a dough ball, a tortilla or a toasted bagel)
  • Spruced-up salad: On a bed of greens topped with sautéed veggies and a drizzle of EVOO and balsamic vinegar
  • For brekkie: Tossed in scrambled eggs or added to a breakfast quesadilla
