Garlicky Grilled Shrimp

This is one of my favorite things to throw on the grill in the summertime. They’re super easy to make and they cook in just a few minutes. Great with a hefeweissen or a very cold sancerre.

1 lb large shrimp (large = 15-20 shrimp per lb), shell on but cleaned (“vein” removed)

3-5 cloves garlic, chopped very fine

½ tsp chili flakes

2 tbsp olive oil

½ cup parsley, chopped

½ tsp sea salt

Lemon wedges


Combine garlic, chili flakes, olive oil, parsley and salt in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours. Remove and thread shrimp onto wooden skewers. Be sure to thread the skewers through both ends of the shrimp so they’re stable and won’t spin around on the skewers.


Prepare a medium-hot grill. Grill shrimp approximately 3-4 minutes on each side, until pink and shells begin to char. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

Serves 4.
