What’s for Dinner: Broiled Herbed [and Spicy] Shrimp

It was just my parents and I home for dinner tonight, so shrimp was the perfect thing to work with.

Today, I had extra large shrimp (26-30 count) at home. A couple hours ahead of time, I marinated my shrimp with: black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, rosemary leaves, basil leaves, and lemon juice.

When I was ready to assemble dinner, I skewered my marinated shrimp. I put the skewers on top of a foil tray. With my broiler on high, I put the skewers in the oven for about 2-3 minutes on each side.

Note:  I used the suggested 6 extra large shrimps for a serving size.

Tip: Don’t forget to leave your oven door open a tad bit whenever you use the broiler.

I served my [healthy] skewers of shrimp alongside my Caesar salad, and my [not so healthy] Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Click here to browse through other suggestions for sides.
