A new year and a new you? Or a new year and an improved you? Either way this recipe is easy, delicious and healthy – a true Lean Luxury go to. I like to call them I’ll be with you in the squeezing of a grilled lemon. Because you grill the lemons on the skewers with the shrimp everything gets a delicious warm smoky flavor.
Buy shrimp from a good fishmonger – I like McCalls on Hillhurst. If you aren’t lucky enough to pick lemons off a tree then buy organic ones. Devein the shrimp by running a sharp knife along spine and then pulling out the yucky grey vein. In a shallow bowl marinate the shrimp in a mixture of marin and a little rice vinegar.
Fire up the grill and get it nice and hot. On a skewer alternate shrimp and lemon wedges. Turn the heat down to medium and place the skewers on for a couple of minutes until the shrimp turns pink and turn and grill the other side.
Serve immediately, remove from skewer and squeeze the grilled lemon over the top.
Then here’s the best part – invite friends over to enjoy around the fire pit – with a glass of rosé, pink lemonade or my fav pink bubbles – kept cold in ice from the new DCS ice maker contained in a beautiful silver ice tub from Vintageweave. Rosé Corner happens all over the world but for now we have christened the new outdoor entertaining space of our new deck – cheers and happy new year and happy new you!
