Old Bay Marinated & Grilled Shrimp


Marinate the shrimp for only 30 minutes.
Wonderful flavors of lemon juice, garlic, and the spice blend of Old Bay seafood seasoning. 
Don't over-marinate, the shrimp can become tough as the lemon juice will start to cook the shrimp.
Serve with boiled or roasted potatoes for a version of shrimp boil.

1 large lemon
2 large cloves garlic
1 tablespoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound jumbo shrimp (16/20), peeled and deveined
Hot sauce, for serving

Juice half of the lemon and add the juice to a medium glass bowl. Finely grate the garlic and add to the bowl along with the Old Bay seasoning, olive oil and shrimp. Toss to combine.

in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the remaining lemon half into wedges and reserve for serving.

Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the shrimp from the marinade and put on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. In batches, cook the shrimp until lightly charred in spots on both sides and just cooked through, about 3 minutes total. Remove from the heat and transfer to a large plate.

Serve the shrimp with the reserved lemon wedges and hot sauce.
