This is a light, refreshing way to serve up lemon shrimp appetizers. It only take a few minutes to prepare the marinade but it needs about 8 hours to steep.
So… MAKE AHEAD! You can thread the shrimp on skewers to serve or you can treat it like a shrimp salad and mound it on a bed of lettuce.
The recipe calls for fresh dill in the marinade. If I don’t have fresh dill available I mince up dill pickles and add to the marinade. I added some pickle slices to the skewers as well but that is totally optional. If you want to keep it really simple you could also serve it on a platter with picks for guests to spear their own.
If you buy cooked cleaned shrimp it takes no time at all to mix up the marinade. I have been making this for years and it gets rave reviews every time.
The original recipe is from a book called Outdoor Entertaining by Elizabeth Sahatjian.
