Grilled Lime Shrimp


Looking for new recipes to try out on our new BBQ grill, I came across this gem on Food.com. Sounds scrumptious, so I thought I’d share.

– 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh lime zest
– 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon cumin
– 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
– 1⁄2-1 teaspoon salt
– 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 2-3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 lb shelled deveined uncooked shrimp

1. Mix together the first 8 ingredients in a bowl.
2. Add shrimp; toss to coat.
3. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes to marinate.
4. Thread shrimp on metal skewers; reserve marinade.
5. Place skewered shrimp on grill over medium heat.
6. Cook 3-7 minutes or until shrimp turn pink, turning once and brushing with marinade occasionally.
