Gluten Free Simple Grilled Shrimp

These past few days have not been fun! This past weekend I felt a combination stomach ache/migraine coming on and by Monday night I had to go to bed pretty early. Today has been miserable, but my wonderful hubby actually took the afternoon off and watched little girl {who we’re pretty sure has what I have – which is super fun,} cleaned, and made supper! My goal for today had been to share my kitchen coffee art I FINALLY finished, but I had absolutely no energy or motivation to take the pictures yesterday or today, so those will have to wait. What I do have for everyone is a super yummy grilled shrimp recipe I found over at C’est pas de la tarte! {MareeAnn’s blog is in French, and she comes up with some pretty unique stuff… this is the first one I’ve been brave enough to attempt!}

  1. 1 bag large, cooked shrimp {We used Market Pantry}
  2. 2 cups olive oil
  3. 2 TBS oregano*
  4. 1 TBS cilantro*
  5. 1/2 tsp lime zest
  6. 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  7. 1 tsp coarse salt
  1. Mix all ingredients for marinade and add shrimp, making sure they are well covered.
  2. Let marinate in fridge for at least 15 minutes. {We made ours before running some errands, so they probably marinated for 1-2 hours.}
  3. Next remove shrimp from marinade and grill about 3 minutes each side over medium heat. {Wes wanted to use his "actual" grill, so we skewered them, but you can just cook them in a pan on the stove if you want.}
  1. *The original recipe called for 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, which I discovered we were out of in the middle of making it {I guess Wes used it all up on his Meatballs!} so I subbed oregano & cilantro in it's place. It also called for 2 cloves garlic, which I evidently just skipped for no apparent reason. What can I say, my brain was not fully functioning at this time!

That’s it! We served with rice and steamed green beans & potatoes. I’m not normally a huge seafood person, but I enjoyed this dish. Wes on the other hand LOVES shrimp, and he ate way more than his fair share :).

  • Oh no! I hope you feel better soon! This recipe looks delicious! If only my husband liked seafood :/

  • Oh man! This recipe looks absolutely AMAZING! I'll definitely get Husby to grill this up, especially since he's been grilling 2-3 times a week lately!

  • Alejandra Gomez

    This sounds super delicious! I will definitely have to try to make this at some point! Also I hope you and Hayden feel better soon! You're lucky to have such a wonderful hubby to take care of you when you're sick =]

  • Thanks! I hope so too lol, I am SO ready to be over whatever this is 🙁

  • That's awesome! I'm pretty sure Wes would grill every day if he could get away with it lol… what is it that attracts men to the grill so much?!

  • You totally should 🙂 – yes, Wes has really been stepping up his game! I seriously don't think I would have been able to make it through yesterday without him lol!

  • U're take on the recipe looks good! I'm sure gonna give it a try 🙂 

  • Awesome! I didn't even mean to do it differently… the chaos of the day just made it turn out that way 😛
