Make With Me- Grilled Garlic Shrimp

In Canada, there are roughly 500,000 people living with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Over 70,000 of them are under the age of 65 and about 50,000 of them are under the age of 60.

My grandpa had this disease and when he was diagnosed, he was under the age of 65 (he lived to be over 80). One of his favourite foods was shrimp. So, in his honour and memory this week's recipe is...

Grilled Garlic Shrimp

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 1.5 pounds raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
To make:
  • Heat butter and garlic in an skillet over medium-high heat
  • Add shrimp and cook for 3 minutes, turning once half way through
  • Squeeze lemon over shrimp
  • Add salt and pepper
  • Enjoy!

  1. Olive oil can be used in place of butter
  2. Shrimp can be purchased already cleaned and deveined.
  3. Can also be made on a barbecue- add melted butter/olive oil and garlic to tin foil, add shrimp, seal tin foil, and barbecue. I have never barbecued in my life, so I'm not sure how long it takes to cook shrimp on a barbecue. I don't even know if barbecued shrimp tastes different than oven grilling. I suggest consulting a barbecue expert in your life or using Google to determine shrimp barbecue cooking length.
