Chimichurri Grilled Shrimp Recipe | Fast, Easy, Healthy Dinner
Heat a grill to medium-high heat (shrimp cook so quickly that the grill temperature is fairly flexible; get the grill hot but don’t stress too much about it!). Combine the shallot, garlic, and jalapeno in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add the cilantro, parsley, lime juice, olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper; process until fairly smooth. Place the shrimp in a bowl and pour 1/3 cup of the chimichurri sauce over; toss to coat. Thread the shrimp onto skewers to make them easier to handle on the grill, or put down foil if using loose shrimp. Grill the shrimp for 2-3 minutes per side, until charred and pink throughout. Serve with the remaining chimichurri sauce, grilled veggies, and brown rice or quinoa.
