Dairy-Free / Low Carb / Gluten-Free / Paleo
1 pound medium-size shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tails on
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
4 1⁄2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon granulated stevia
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon dried basil
1. Put the shrimp, olive oil, lime juice, garlic, stevia, paprika, Italian seasoning, and basil in a large resealable bag. Massage the bag to ensure the shrimp are well coated. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
2. Thread the shrimp onto skewers. If you are not using a rack, be sure to lightly spray the surface they are cooking on to prevent them from sticking.
3. To grill: Allow the barbecue to warm up to medium heat before placing the shrimp on the grill. To broil: Set the oven rack about 8 inches from the broiler, line a broiler pan with aluminum foil, and arrange the shrimp skewers on it. Set your broiler to high and allow the oven to heat up a bit before placing the shrimp in it.
4. Cook the shrimp for 8 to 10 minutes, turning over once after 4 to 5 minutes. They are done when opaque with pink tails.
5. Serve warm.
Time-saving tip: Make your skewers based on your desired serving size. For 4-ounce servings, use 4 skewers per pound of shrimp, and so on.
