I love shrimp! I love grilling. I love grilling shrimp! Let’s throw some shrimp on the barbie! This Garlic Teriyaki Shrimp is an excellent choice.
If you go out for a shrimp dinner you pay up to $16.99 a plate. I can feed my entire family for that price, if I watch for shrimp on sale at the grocery store.
The marinade below is one of my favorite recipes to use. It works well on shrimp, chicken and pork.
Supper Made Simple
1.) Whip up my garlic teriyaki marinade in the morning.
2.) Thread Shrimp on kabob sticks.
3.) Place marinade and shrimp kabobs in a covered container
4.) Let your shrimp marinade all day. When you come home from work, throw the shrimp on the barbie.
Materials for Marinate:
1 pound, peeled and deveined jumbo or prawn shrimp
1 Gallon sized Ziplock bags or covered container
1/3 cup Teriyaki Sauce
7 wooden kabob sticks (more if you want veggies)
Garlic ( 3 cloves, chopped or a tbsp of pre-chopped in a jar)
1/2 cup of Olive Oil
1.) Place the wooden kabob sticks in water and let them soak. The sticks will need to absorb the water to keep them from burning on the grill.
2.) Peel and devein 1 pound of prawn shrimp.
3.) In a 1 Gallon sized Ziplock bag mix the following:
1/3 cup Teriyaki Sauce, Garlic ( 3 cloves, chopped or a tablespoon of pre-chopped from a jar) and 1/2 cup of Olive Oil
4.) Place all of the raw shrimp into the gallon bag to marinate for at least 15-20 minutes. I like to leave mine all day. The flavor seems to soak all the way through.
5.) Thread the shrimp onto the wooden kabob sticks.
(This can be done before you marinade too)
6.) Cook over medium grill heat for 4-5 minutes per side. Until the shrimp turns pink.
Excellent add ons for the Garlic Teriyaki Shrimp are grilled veggies or grilled whole mushrooms. Be sure to start veggies before your shrimp. They take longer to cook.
Serve with a side salad and dinner is served!
