Ingredients

Grilled Shrimp

  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Herbed Yogurt Sauce

  • 2 cups fresh parsley
  • 1 cup Stonyfield organic whole milk plain yogurt
  • 1 garlic clove peeled
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • In a small bowl whisk together lime juice, olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Add the shrimp to the bowl and toss to coat. Set aside to marinate for 15-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, to make the herbed yogurt sauce, place the parsley in a food processor and pulse to roughly chop the parsley. Add the yogurt, garlic clove, lime juice and salt/pepper and blend until well combined and smooth.
  • While the food processor is running, slowly pour in the olive oil and allow it to emulsify the sauce, scraping down the sides of the food processor as necessary.
  • Preheat the grill to medium heat. Thread the shrimp on skewers and place on the grill. Grill on each side for 2-3 minutes or until no longer pink.
  • Remove the skewers from the grill and serve immediately with the herbed yogurt sauce.
