Citrus Marinated Grilled Shrimp
If you’re looking for an easy breezy weeknight meal with all of the flavor with little to no clean-up, this is it. Shrimp are a healthy protein low in fat and when marinated in a yummy combo of Uncle Matt’s Orange Juice, herbs, and honey, it’s a mouth-watering winner.
2 pounds fresh unpeeled jumbo shrimp
1 cup Uncle Matt’s Organic Orange Juice, divided
1/4 cup organic honey
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon organic fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon organic fresh thyme, chopped
Peel and devein shrimp. Wash and pat dry. Place in a bowl and set aside.
Combine 1/2 cup orange juice, honey, and next three ingredients in a bowl. Pour mixture over shrimp. Cover bowl of shrimp and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
If using wooden skewers, prepare them while the shrimp marinate. It’s recommended to soak wooden skewers for 30 minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill.
Once marinated, thread the shrimp onto skewers and place on grill. Cook on low heat until shrimp are opaque.
