Updated: Aug 6, 2023

Bright, herb forward, grilled shrimp served over pasta is very refreshing on a hot day!

Hot summer days are great for bright, light and flavorful dishes like this one. The sauce is a simple, full of fresh herbs, touched with lemon, and is ready in a snap. It's the perfect dish for a hectic weeknight or a relaxing Saturday. It can also be served or or cold; I had left overs for lunch and it was amazing!

Zesty Grilled Shrimp with Herbs


  • 1-2 lbs raw shrimp (thawed); shelled and de-veined is preferable

  1. Finely chop all fresh herbs, half an onion, and the chilies and place in a small bowl.

  2. Add 2 tbsps of the olive oil along with the black pepper, thyme, and lemon juice to the herb bowl and stir. Set aside while you prep and cook the shrimp.
