Italian Shrimp & Rosemary Spiedini Recipe

Italian Shrimp & Rosemary Spiedini Recipe

Four simple but flavorful ingredients bring out the best in shrimp, and all in a matter of minutes. Serve the skewers with grilled asparagus and orzo for a light, fresh, healthful Italian meal.


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus some for seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds (about 30) raw extra-large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on if you like
  • 8 (9-inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Add the shrimp, toss gently, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  2. Prepare your grill or heat a grill pan to medium-high. Lightly oil the grates or pan.
  3. Thread 3 to 4 shrimp onto each skewer. Season the shrimp with a little kosher salt, and grill until just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Serves 4.
