Garlic Lime Prawn/Shrimp Skewers


shrimp skewersEnjoy this easy recipe from nutritionist Leanne Ely, CNC, creator of the acclaimed the Saving Dinner menu-mailer service and author of six books.

She's probably best-known for her great Saving Dinner books and The New York Times bestseller, Body Clutter

As Leanne wrote, “You don’t want to be eating farm-raised shrimp … especially foreign farm-raised shrimp."
 
"So, which shrimp do you buy? Your best choice would be California coonstripe shrimp, Oregon bay shrimp and British Columbia spot prawns.” 
 
 
Garlic Lime Prawn/Shrimp Skewers
Do-ahead Tip: Marinate shrimp for at least 30 minutes prior to grilling. 
If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling or broiling (to prevent burning). 
Serves 4
 
5 limes
3 cloves garlic, pressed
2 tablespoons water sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 pounds spot prawns or shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  1. Zest (finely grate the rind) three of the 5 limes into a large bowl. 
  2. Next, juice the same 3 limes into the same bowl; add the garlic, oil, water, salt, pepper and shrimp; toss well. Cover and refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat outdoor or indoor grill or oven broiler. If you are using metal skewers, give them a quick coat of olive oil to keep the shrimp from sticking.
  4. Remove shrimp from marinade and thread 4 or 5 onto each skewer. Grill/broil shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until they turn bright pink.
  5. Cut remaining limes into wedges. Serve shrimp skewers sprinkled with chopped parsley and garnished with lime wedges.
