Helping Hubbie: Grilled Garlic Basil Shrimp

Grilled Garlic Basil Shrimp #getgrillin #shrimp #helping hubbie recipe

Last summer, my husband loved it when I made shrimp on the grill. In fact, some nights thats all we would have to eat. It is one of the easiest meals to make. All you have to do is slap a marinade on those puppies, throw them on the grill and viola.. dinner! So I thought, well, if it’s that easy to make then Mike can do it! hehe… {happy smile}

So this weeks Helping Hubbie post is Grilled Garlic Basil Shrimp. The marinade to this shrimp is awesome! It has all kinds of yummy flavors; like white wine, garlic, red pepper flakes, and basil. I usually serve these with fresh lemon slices and homemade cocktail sauce because we like ours with lots of horseradish. Plus it’s so easy to make, ketchup and horseradish. {it’s not rocket science folks}

You and your hubbie will be so impressed that he made such an awesome meal! ๐Ÿ™‚

To get started, rinse 2 lbs. of raw shrimp {be sure it is deveined and the shell is off} and place in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, mix together 2 garlic cloves minced, 1 T. dry basil, 1 tsp. of lemon zest, salt, pepper, and 1 tsp. of red pepper flakes.

  1. Love using white wine in seafood dishes. And with the garlic and red pepper flakes…oh my! This would be fun to make…now I’m going to stop and grab some fresh shrimp when I make my travels down the canyon today! On my to-do list. Have a fun weekend, Krista!

    1. Me too!!! {well i guess you figured that out already huh… haha} Trip down the canyon!?! Wow, you must live way out there…. but it is probably beautiful. Hope you have a great weekend girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This looks so delicious and easy! Do you have any recommendations of how to cook it if doing it in the kitchen? Stove? Oven?

    Thanks!
    Lauren

    1. Hey Lauren, absolutely! You could totally saute this over the stove at medium high heat. I would put some olive oil down in the pan first {so they dont stick} and then throw the shrimp in. Use the same cooking time, about 5-7 minutes, or until it is pink and all curled up. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know how it turns out! Thanks so much for stopping by chica!

    1. Me too! This grill pan is the bomb and only cost me like $7 at Bed, Bath, & Beyond!!! Go get it… I promise it will give you a great return for you money. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Mine too! I also love that it grows like crazy and is not effected by my lack of green thumb! {lets just say I tend to kill things… plants that is} Thanks for pinning! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hey Carrie, thanks! It is perfect and we start to get in the warmer months! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wouldn’t miss Pinworthy Projects on Friday, your party rocks! Thanks girl! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. We seriously love our shrimp around here! These sound great! We can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to this week on Saturday Show & Tell! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks MacKenzie! We love to shrimp too, even though they are “bottom feeders” haha… Just stopped by. What a great party you have every week at Cheerios & Lattes!

  4. These look amazing! I have one of those BBQ basket thingies – bought it (as I’m guilty of doing with most things cooking related I see lol) – no idea what to do with it, and now I know! Just ran downstairs to tell Mr G ๐Ÿ™‚ Now all we need is nice weather over here…

  5. Hello, great receipe! Canโ€™t wait to try it out.
    Just one question: Iโ€™m italian but we donโ€™t have that โ€œitalian seasoningโ€ in Italy.. hehe.. What does it taste like? Or do you know what is it made of?
    Thank you in advance
