  • 1 lb large shrimp, deveined and shells removed (20 to a pound)


  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 drops of Worcestershire sauce


  • Whisk together olive oil, garlic powder, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl. place shrimp in a plastic resealable bag. Pour the marinade over the shrimp and seal the bag. Refrigerate and marinate for 2 hours.
  • Thread shrimp on bamboo skewers. Place shrimp on medium hot grill with flame or heat source at least 6 to 8 inches from shrimp. The shrimp will cook very quickly 3 to 4 minutes maximum. Turn once during cooking. Watch them very closely.


I always sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese on my shrimp as soon as they come off the grill. Serve with French fries and cold slaw.
Tip: Often times I will wrap each of the shrimp in a half a piece of bacon. I partially cook the bacon in the microwave. Then wrap it around the shrimp prior to putting them on the grill. I secure the bacon ends with a toothpick. The bacon gives the shrimp an added flavor and, my family likes it. 
Note: Here is another grilled shrimp marinade your family might enjoy.
