Marinated Shrimp Skewers

Yes, this recipe requires a tiny bit of planning since there is a marinade involved, but when it comes to the cooking, it is lightning fast. About five minutes on the grill and you have a super quick entree ready to go.

Prepare some cole slaw ahead of time, maybe some AIP tortillas as well and you have a fish taco night ready when every one is home from work and after school activities.

My family of four, who usually only eats one pound of protein per dinner, can put down close to two pounds of shrimp, so plan accordingly!

Instructions
  1. To the container in which you plan to marinate your shrimp, add: lemon juice, onion, dill, salt, pepper and olive oil. Mix well.
  2. Clean shrimp and add to marinade. Toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate 2-4 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, add shrimp to skewers.
  4. Heat grill on high for about five minutes then scrape grates clean. Reduce heat to medium. Add skewers to grill and close lid. After two to three minutes, flip skewers, close lid and cook two to three more minutes. Once shrimp are no longer translucent, they are done. Don't over cook.
  5. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Quite a few years ago, we invested in a set of metal skewers and they have been really great. They have a non-stick finish that hasn't flaked off and the best part: I don't have to remember to pre-soak them like you do with the bamboo ones.

Ours' are like these, except we have a non-stick coating. Definitely look for skewers that are flat, not round, so your food stays put and flips more easily.
