  • 6 wooden skewers
  • 1 pound (455 g) large shrimp, deveined
  • 1 lemon , zested and juiced
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) olive oil
  • 5 cloves garlic , minced
  • cup (80 mL) dry white wine
  • 4 tablespoons (15 g) fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
  • teaspoon (2 g) kosher or fine sea salt
  • teaspoon (0.8 g) freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon (3.8 g) fresh parsley leaves, for garnish
  • ½ lemon , sliced, for garnish


  • Soak the wooden skewers in water for around 30 minutes to help prevent burning them. Wash and peel the shrimp, leaving the tails on.
  • Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, white wine, finely chopped parsley, salt, and pepper to a bowl and whisk the ingredients together. Pour half of the mixture into a ramekin and set aside. Use the remaining half of the mixture as a marinade.
  • Skewer 4-5 shrimp onto each skewer. Place skewers flat on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush one side of the skewered shrimp with marinade and refrigerate for 10 minutes. Flip shrimp over, brush second side, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, preheat an indoor or outdoor grill to around 400°F. Place the shrimp skewers on the grill. Grill the shrimp skewers on low heat for about 3-4 minutes per side – do not overcook.
  • Transfer grilled shrimp skewers to a plate and serve with the reserved lemon garlic sauce.
  • Garnish with some chopped fresh parsley and lemon slices.


Tip: To save time, you can buy tail-on shrimp that are already peeled and deveined.
