Broiled Herbed Shrimp

April 14, 2013

Some meals are all about fresh herbs and it is that time of year that all things that cook quickly or are chilled are most welcome in my home.  I made these for an appetizer for four, but it is a welcome sight for ‘Two for Dinner’.  These are great whether broiled or grilled and similar preparation.  The star of course is the shrimp, but fresh herbs from the garden make such a difference.  Please proceed and enjoy.


Broiled Herbed Shrimp


  • 1 lb. Large Shrimp (head removed and butterflied)
  • Fresh Basil (chopped)*
  • Fresh Parsley (chopped)*
  • Fresh Chives (chopped)*
  • 3-4 T. Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon (juiced)
  • Sea Salt and Fresh Black Pepper
  • 1 Lemon (for garnish)
  • Fresh Basil Leaves (for garnish)

* I have an herb garden so it depends which herbs I use.


  1. Combine the oil, lemon juice and fresh herbs in a medium large bowl
  2. Add the shrimp and toss thoroughly; let sit in the refrigerator at least 1 hour
  3. Broil or grill 2-3 minutes; turn and grill approx. 1 more minute (shells will be pink)
  4. Serve immediate or chill for 1 hour is planning to serve cold




(Serves 4 as an Appetizer)

Recipe inspired from my garden.
