1 pound shelled and deveined shrimp
4 lemons, 3 thinly sliced and 1 zested and juiced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 stick unsalted butter
4 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 teaspoon dried oregano


On each skewer, alternate 5-6 shrimp and 5-6 folded lemon slices; season with salt and pepper. Place skewers on the grill and cook 2-3 minutes on the first side. Carefully flip skewers and cook on second side for 1-2 minutes.

While shrimp is cooking, heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat (or directly on the grill top). Once the butter has melted, add in garlic, parsley, oregano, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper. Stir and allow flavors to combine for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Brush the skewers with flavored butter then remove skewers from the grill.

Serve with grilled veggies such as broccolini, asparagus, or zucchini, dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, red pepper flakes, and parm cheese.
