Servings: This recipe makes approximately 4 servings.
- Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.
- In a bowl, combine minced garlic, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create the marinade.
- Place the peeled and deveined shrimp in a separate bowl and pour the marinade over the shrimp. Toss to coat the shrimp evenly. Allow the shrimp to marinate for 15-20 minutes to develop the flavors.
- While the shrimp is marinating, thread the shrimp onto the soaked wooden skewers, piercing through the tail and the head of each shrimp.
- Lightly oil the grill grates or grill pan to prevent sticking. Place the shrimp skewers on the grill or grill pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side until the shrimp turns pink and opaque.
- Once cooked, remove the shrimp skewers from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter.
- Garnish with additional fresh parsley and serve the Lemon Garlic Shrimp Skewers hot alongside your favorite keto-friendly side dishes such as a crisp salad or grilled vegetables.
