Yields4 Servings

 1 lb Large shrimp, deveined, peeled or unpeeled
 ¼ cup Olive Oil
 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
 ¾ tsp Salt
 ¼ tsp Pepper
 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
 1 tbsp Chopped parsley
 Lemon Wedges for serving

1

Place the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and garlic in a resealable plastic bag. Seal and shake to combine.

2

Add the shrimp to the bag and seal. Toss to coat evenly with the marinade.

3

Marinate for at least 15 minutes or up to 2 hours. You don't want to marinate for longer than that, as the acid in the lemon juice will start to cook the shrimp.
Thread the shrimp onto skewers. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.

4

Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are pink and opaque.

5

Broiler directions: Preheat the broiler. Place the shrimp skewers on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray. Broil for 2-3 minutes on each side or until shrimp are pink and opaque.
Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
