Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Here is a really fast and simple way to jazz up shrimp!  Italian seasoning, fresh parsley and a grill make this a healthy go to for hot summer days!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Ingredients (serves 2):
- 10-12 medium or large shrimp, raw, peeled and deveined*
- 3 tbsp lite Italian dressing (use whatever you like here!)
- 1 tsp very finely minced parsley
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning (I buy the Italian seasoning grinder and find that the flavor is much better when you grind them fresh)
- Freshly cracked salt and pepper to taste

*I only had pre-cooked shrimp on hand, so I reduced the cooking time.  No one wants to eat a rubbery shrimp.

- Whisk together all ingredients except shrimp in a bowl
- Toss in shrimp and coat well; let sit on counter for 10-15 minutes

- Thread shrimp onto a skewer for easy grilling

- Pour remaining marinade over shrimp skewer
- Throw on the grill for 2-3 minutes per side; basting with remaining marinade as they cook
