This is a quick and easy way to cook shrimp. First, the shrimp is marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, and garlic. Then, it’s skewered and grilled for just a few minutes on each side. You can try this method with scallops or even chicken tenders. Serve the grilled shrimp over cooked rice or angel hair pasta.
