Shrimp on the Barbee

Jul 23, 2013 09:45AM ● Published by Arden Haley

If you're counting calories at dinner time, go for shrimp. These little babies are not only incredibly flavorful but they clock in at a mere 290 calories. Serve them with some roasted broccoli and you are good to go!

Ingredients

8 large shrimp
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced

Special tools: 2 skewers that have been soaked in water for at least 1 hour.

Directions

In a large ziptop bag, combine olive oil, shrimp and garlic. Toss to coat well and refrigerate for at least one hour. Preheat your grill to low temperature. While the grill preheats, prepare your shrimp. Take a skewer and insert it into the shrimp, going through the tail and into the meat. Repeat this with the remaining shrimp, adding 4 to each skewer. Place the skewered shrimp on the top grate of the grill. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes until cooked through. Serve with steamed broccoli.
