Lemon Garlic Marinated Grilled Shrimp

A delicious and simple to prepare Lemon Garlic Marinated Grilled Shrimp recipe. Perfect for summer grilling.

I am starting to do my happy dance. It’s summertime and that means I’ll be doing a lot of grilling outside. I love being able to use the grill. One of my favorite grill recipes is this Lemon Garlic Marinated Grilled Shrimp.

Grilled shrimp is a great a low-calorie, low-carb recipe that can be made in a variety of ways. This grilled shrimp recipe uses fresh mushroom and a simple store bought marinade for an easy weeknight dinner that can also be perfect for a cookout with friends.

Lemon Garlic Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Ingredients:
½ pound of petite peeled and cleaned shrimp
1.5 cups washed and quartered baby bella mushrooms
½ to ¾ cup lemon garlic marinade – I bought mine from Wegman’s

Directions:
1. Pat the fresh or thawed, peeled and clean shrimp dry and then place in a dish with the lemon garlic marinade, stir well, cover and let sit for a few hours in the refrigerator.
2. Use a few grill safe skewers to thread on the shrimp and mushrooms. I kept them separate to make sure that they could cook at their own speed.
3. Heat the grill to about 400 degrees, when ready; carefully place the shrimp directly onto the heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side. The shrimp should appear solid white with brighter coral orange lines when fully
cooked. The final cook time will heavily depend on the size of the shrimp and the temperature of the grill so do keep a careful and close eye on everything as you go.
4. The mushrooms took just a pinch longer and did better just off to the side of the direct flame.
