Grilled Lime Shrimp

While one of my favorite cousins is half-way across the world, I am still thinking of her! Meg and I used to watch Top Chef on Wednesday nights and cook gourmet meals (or at least tried). She is a really great cook; I would compare her cooking skills and looks to Giada De Laurentiis, only blonde. One of Meg's marvelous creations was her grilled lime shrimp. So yummy!

Anyway, Meg, just know that I wish you were in MN to cook with me. I realize you are having fun living in Europe and all... but please come home soon!

Grilled Lime Shrimp
(From my cousin, Meg)

1/2 tsp. Fresh Lime Zest
1/2 tsp. Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Freshly Ground Pepper
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Tbsp. Lime Juice
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 pound uncooked Shrimp, peeled & deveined

Mix the lime zest, oregano, salt, pepper, olive oil, lime juice, and garlic in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss. Let that marinate for 10 minutes. Thread shrimp on skewers or put in a grill basket; reserve marinade. Grill over medium heat for 3 to 7 minutes. If you don't have access to a grill, simply sauté the shrimp in a skillet. Return shrimp to a platter and pour marinade over shrimp. Serve warm or cold.

Thanks for grilling, Doug!
