Shrimp Shish Kebabs - Spiedini di Scampi
Yield:
6 servings
Yield:
6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds giant shrimp,U 10 size, peeled
  • 4 long branches rosemary, leaves removed to yield skewers, leaves set aside
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 2 ounces limoncello
  • 2 bunches oregano, leaves removed and bruised
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Divide the shrimp into four equal portions and skewer them on each of the four rosemary branches. In a large, non-reactive casserole, combine the lemon juice and zest, limoncello, oregano and olive oil and place shrimp in the marinade, turning skewers to make sure that shrimp are well-coated. Cover, place in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the grill or broiler. If using a charcoal grill, just before beginning to cook the shrimp, scatter the rosemary leaves over the coals. Cook each skewer for three minutes, then turn and cook for 1 minute more, basting with marinade. Serve either hot, or cooled.
