Grilled Rosemary Garlic Shrimp

By , from the Bruce Bauer collection


¼ cup chopped garlic
1 tsp. coarse salt
2 Tbsp. minced fresh rosemary leaves, plus extra sprigs for garnish
3 Tbsp. olive oil, plus extra oil for brushing
16 jumbo shrimp (about 10 per pound)
4 bamboo skewers (each 12 inches long; see Note)
~ Lemon wedges


  1. Place garlic and salt in bowl of mortar or food processor and grind into a smooth paste.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together garlic paste, minced rosemary, and 3 tablespoons oil; add shrimp. Marinate shrimp, covered and chilled, at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. In a shallow dish, cover skewers with water and soak for 30 minutes. Prepare grill.
  4. To grill, thread 4 shrimp onto each skewer and brush with additional oil. Grill shrimp on an oiled rack, set about 5 inches over glowing coals, 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through. Alternatively, brush shrimp with additional oil and grill in a hot well-seasoned ridged grill pan, covered, over moderately high heat, 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  5. Garnish shrimp with rosemary sprigs and serve with lemon wedges.


If you have metal skewers, use those.
