If you enjoy shrimp scampi, then this is the grilled shrimp recipe for you. The garlic butter sauce acts as a marinade and a dipping sauce.
- Serves: 5 persons
- 3pounds raw jumbo shrimp (peeled and deveined)
- 1cup butter (melted)
- ⅓cup olive oil
- ¼cup orange juice
- 4cloves garlic (minced)

Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Place shrimp in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients for the sauce.
Step 3Divide sauce in half, and pour one-half of the sauce onto shrimp. Toss to coat, cover, and place in the refrigerator for 30 to 40 minutes.
Step 4Preheat grill to medium heat. Arrange shrimp onto skewers. Try to fit about 5 or 6 on each skewer. Do not overcrowd.
Step 5Place skewers onto grill and cook for 2 to 4 minutes per side. When shrimp no longer look translucent, take on a pink hue, and the texture is firm, remove from heat.
Step 6Meanwhile, heat remaining half of the sauce in a pan over low heat until warm.
Step 7Arrange skewered shrimp on a platter and either drizzle heated sauce over top or serve the warm sauce on the side. Garnish with extra chopped basil or parsley.
