To save you time, purchase fresh shrimp (preferably tails on) that have already been peeled and deveined. Prep: 5 minutes; Chill: 3 hours; Cook: 3 minutes.


Makes 10 servings

Recipe from



2 3/4 pounds (about 50) fresh large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
4 fresh rosemary sprigs


1. Place first 3 ingredients in a large shallow baking dish, and toss well. Squeeze rosemary sprigs lightly to release flavor, then tuck down into shrimp mixture. Cover and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours.

2. Thread 5 shrimp on each of 10 long metal skewers (or wooden ones soaked in water), leaving space between shrimp. Grill, covered with grill lid, over high heat (500° to 550°), 1 1/2 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Serve hot or at room temperature with Tarator Sauce.

Note: Shrimp may be broiled in the oven rather than grilled. Simply broil 4 inches from heat 2 to 2 1/2 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness.
