Herb Grilled Shrimp


fresh grilled shrimp for the BBQ

This recipe is very sketchy on preparation and cooking, but the ingredients may make experimentation worthwhile. Note that you must guess as to the quantities. I would start by deciding how many ounces of shrimp I wanted, then building up a marinade to match the volume of shrimp.



1/4 cup virgin olive oil
1/4th cup Italian Dressing
4 garlic cloves - grated
1 Tbs dry basil
1 Tbs dry thyme
1 tsp. fresh ground pepper
Dash of hot sauce to taste
Salt to taste
Any number of shrimp - up to 50 or so depending upon size



Shell the shrimp, rinse and dry. Then place to the side.

In a medium-size mixing bowl combine all other ingredients. After thoroughly mixing ingredients, start the grill and allow it to become hot. Then add the shrimp to the marinade and mix thoroughly. Allow this to sit for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.

Cook the shrimp until firm, being careful not to overcook or they will become tough. If you like to experiment, cook only one and then taste it. Adjust/Add to the ingredients to your liking.
