  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves

  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

  • 1 tbsp minced jalapeno chili (from 1/2 jalapeno)

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (from about 3 cloves)

  • 1 tbsp grated fresh lemon zest

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp, in shells (about 20)


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the chopped cilantro, parsley, minced jalapeno chili, minced garlic, lemon zest, and olive oil. Mix well to combine.

  2. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

  3. Rinse the jumbo shrimp under cold water and pat them dry using paper towels. Leave the shells intact for grilling.

  4. Place the shrimp in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the herbed marinade over the shrimp, making sure they are well coated. Allow the shrimp to marinate for about 15-20 minutes to absorb the flavors.

  5. Once the shrimp have marinated, remove them from the marinade and thread them onto skewers. If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for about 30 minutes before grilling to prevent them from burning.

  6. Place the skewered shrimp on the preheated grill and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes per side, or until they turn pink and opaque. Be careful not to overcook the shrimp, as they can become rubbery.

  7. Once the shrimp are cooked, remove them from the grill and transfer them to a serving plate.

  8. Serve the Grilled Herbed Shrimp immediately as a main course or as a delicious appetizer. You can garnish them with additional chopped cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice if desired.
