Garlic and Herb Shrimp

Prep time: 35 mins

Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 40 mins

Cost To Make: $10Serving: 4


  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp (16 to 20 count per pound)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 large OR 2 small cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (grey poupon)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp freshly ground black pepper.
  • ⅛ cup plus 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice


  1. Clean the shrimp, remove the shells. Make a slit down the back of the shrimp and clean well. This will also create the “butterfly” effect. Pat shrimp dry with paper towels.
  2. Mix together all of the ingredients except the shrimp.
  3. Add shrimp and coat well with the mixture.
  4. Allow the shrimp to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes at room temperature. Don’t marinate them longer or the lemon juice will start to cook the shrimp.
  5. In a large saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium-high heat.
  6. Add the shrimp and cook about 1½ minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
