Cook Time
  • 1lb shrimp (about 18-20 medium size) raw, peeled and deveined
  • 4tbsp olive oilI used a flavor infused oil with chilies, see note for options
  • 4tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2tbsp parsleyfresh, chopped (divided)
  • 3clove garlicminced (1 tablespoon)
  • 1 lemonhalved and divided – juice 1 half (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 1/4cup breadcrumbsgluten free Italian flavored (if you can’t find gluten free Italian breadcrumbs, add 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning)
  • 4 bamboo or metal skewers
  1. Preheat broiler to high. The broiler has to preheat for at least 15 minutes before cooking the shrimp
  2. Wash shrimp in cool running water and lay out on a paper towel and then pat dry thoroughly
  3. In a large mixing bowl add the garlic, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of parsley and the salt, stir together and then add the shrimp. Using your hands incorporate the shrimp with the lemon juice mixeture
  4. Add the olive oil and vegetable oil slowly to just cover the shrimp, mix together with your hands making sure that the shrimp is covered with the oils. You may not use all the oil and that is ok. You want to pour in just enough to cover the shrimp but not too heavily
  5. Slowly add the breadcrumbs, mixing together. The shrimp will not be totally covered with the breadcrumbs, but will have a rather light coating.
  6. Take the shrimp, head side first and push through the skewers. You want to skewer the shrimp at the tail end as well to be sure they don’t slip off when you turn them. It will be about 5 shrimp per skewer
  7. On a cookie sheet lay out the shrimp skewers evenly, you will need to be able to turn them over to cook the other side
  8. When the broiler has preheated for at least 15 minutes, put the shrimp in the oven. Set timer for 3 minutes and then very carefully turn the skewers over and cook the other side for 2 minutes. The skewers will be really hot, so please be careful
  9. Slice the remaining half of the lemon and serve as a garnish along with the remaining parsley sprinkled over the top of the shrimp
Recipe Notes

I used a flavor infused oil with the recipe I made. If you want some heat you can use a flavor infused oil or add 1 1/2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper to the recipe.
