Marinated Grilled Shrimp

diabetic recipe
 

Ingredients

  • 5 to 6 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons ginger, grated
  • 1 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 2 cups clamato juice
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed (or 1 tablespoon lemon juice)
  • 2 1/2 pounds shrimp with shell on

Method

Step 1

Prepare the shrimp marinade by combining the garlic, ginger, teriyaki sauce, clamato juice and lemon juice.

Step 2

With scissors, cut the shrimp shell and remove the black vein. Leave the shell on. Put shrimp in a large bowl and cover with the marinade. Marinate for about 1/2 hour before grilling.

Step 3

Preheat the barbeque to medium. Grill shrimp for 1 minute then turn over, cover the grill and cook for another 2 minutes.

Cooking Tip:

  • You can use shelled shrimp, just don’t marinate for too long or the lemon juice will begin to cook the shrimp. Marinate for about 15-20 minutes before cooking.
  • Watch shrimp carefully when they are on the bbq, as they cook quickly, especially without the shell, and you don’t want them to dry out.

Did You Know?…

Shrimp is a wonderful main course to grill because it cooks up so quickly and takes the flavors of a marinade or sauce really well.

The marinade recipe for grilled shrimp that you will find here is easy to put together and keeps the shrimp nice and moist while they grill.

This is a perfect diabetes diet recipe. Just make sure you read the label on your teriyaki sauce to make sure it doesn’t have a lot of sugar. Or replace it with soy sauce, just to make sure. It will still be great.

Mmmmm shrimp on the barbie…not just for the Aussies any more!
