  • 1 lb of raw shrimp, peeled washed deveined and patted dry
  • 1/8 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup of very fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2 garlic gloves, finely minced
  • 12-16 leaves of fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • Dash of salt and cracked pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges to serve


    1. Put the olive oil in a medium bowl and add the raw shrimp. Toss and coat evenly. Add the garlic, mint, and salt/pepper in the bowl. Add the bread crumbs and toss lightly making sure all the shrimp are nicely coated. Cover and let marinate for an hour or more in the refrigerator.
    2. Preheat the broiler. Thread 3-5 shrimp onto each metal skewers. If using wood skewers soak them ahead of time.
    3. Place all the skewers evenly on a lightly oiled cookie sheet in the middle section of the oven under the broiler. Depending on size of the shrimp, cook the shrimp on each side for about 2 minutes until the breadcrumbs are golden and the shrimp have turned pick. Stay close to the oven they cook very quickly.
    4. Remove from the oven. Squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top of the cooked shrimp immediately. Then plate and finish by adding additional fresh mint on top for flavor and garnish.

The only thing I changed was I used panko bread crumbs. It's what I had on hand. I mashed them up a bit.
