Prep time: 10 min
Grill time: 6 min


3 pound jumbo shrimp, uncooked
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon coarse or sea salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely-ground black pepper
6 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice

grilling shrimpIn the food processor, place minced garlic, salt, pepper, lime juice, and olive oil; blend until smooth and emulsified.

Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on. Place deveined shrimp in a large bowl. Toss shrimp with the lime marinade. NOTE: Do not leave the shrimp in the marinade for more than 15 minutes, as the texture of the shrimp will change. The lime juice will actually start cooking the shrimp.

To serve, arrange shrimp on a large serving platter and enjoy!
