Citrus fruits and zest are wonderful with Seafood. One of our favorites is Lemon-Ginger Jumbo/Large Shrimp Grilled.
Lemon-Ginger Grilled Shrimp——————Serves 4——————–Prep/Grill 7-8 Minutes
You will need One pound (16 ounces) Fresh Jumbo/Large Shrimp (I buy mine from Seafood Market, frozen pre-cooked will also work-must thaw first). The Shrimp needs to be de-veined, no shell and tail. In a mixing bowl add two whole washed Lemons for their zest and juices, 1-1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger root grated finely, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon chili powder or paprika, salt and black pepper (about 1/4 teaspoon each). Marinate the shrimp for 15-20 minutes in the lemon-ginger mixture. Using an outside grill on medium high heat, or an inside grill or griddle pan, place marinated Shrimp on grill and grill for several minutes each side.
I love to serve this with brown/wild or white rice and a green mixed salad. The flavors are succulent yet delicate. If you love Shrimp you might like to try this easy, recipe using Lemons!
In closing, I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” Wiser. All Things Citrus! See YOU.
