Success - Article sent! close

1 pounds large shrimp, deveined (not cooked shrimp)

cup butter (1 stick)

2 cloves garlic (or to taste)

1 tablespoon paprika

2 teaspoons lemon pepper

1 teaspoon thyme

Rinse the shrimp and put into a resealable plastic bag; set aside.

For the marinade: In a small saute pan, melt the butter, add garlic and saute until soft, 3 minutes. Remove garlic and squeeze it through a garlic press back into the melted butter. Add remaining spices to the butter and mix well. Cool 10 minutes.

Pour marinade into bag with shrimp; shake to coat evenly. Seal and refrigerate about 15 minutes.

Heat a grill to medium heat.

Remove shrimp from marinade and put shrimp onto skewers. Grill shrimp on medium heat for about 7 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time.

Serve as an appetizer, or, over rice for a main course.

Serves four (dinner portions).
