Garlic and Herb Grilled Shrimp

Posted by Solitary Dancer on May 3, 2007

Garlic and Herb Grilled Shrimp


1/4 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh basil
3-4 garlic cloves–minced
1 shallot
1/2 cup butter
16 large shrimp, in the shell preferably with heads left on (Halved lengthwise, leaving them attached 1 inch below the head and deveined)
fresh ground black pepper
white rum, for sprinkling


1. Pulse parsley, basil, garlic and shallots in food processor until finely minced (or mince with knife).

2. Add minced mixture to small sauce pan with butter until butter can be stirred and ingredients combined; medium heat.

3. Light a grill or heat a grill pan.

4. Spread Shrimp open and season with salt & pepper, and brush liberally with the herb butter.

5. Grill over a medium-hot flame, shell side down, until slightly charred, about 1 minute. Turn and grill the other side until lightly browned, about 40 seconds. Flip again and lather with more herb butter, sprinkle with rum and grill until barely cooked through and bubbling, about 1 minute longer.

6. Serve at once.
