What You Need
  • 2 lbs shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup low FODMAP garlic-infused oil
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 heaping tbsp fresh thyme (chopped)
  • 1 heaping tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 heaping tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • olive oil for grill
  • 1/2 lemon (cut into wedges)
What You Do
  1. Place your shrimp in a large bowl and sprinkle them lightly with salt. Then add garlic-infused olive oil, butter, thyme, cilantro, and parsley. Stir the shrimp to coat it in the marinade, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it hang out in the fridge for at least 45 minutes. 

  2. Once your shrimp have finished marinating, turn your barbecue to full. While your grill is heating up, place your shrimp on some skewers. 

  3. Gently oil your grill and then place your skewers down. Cook the first side for 3 minutes. Then gently lift up each end of your skewers to loosen them and flip your shrimp over. Cook on the second side for 3-5 minutes. The shrimp should be pink and a little crunchy. 

  4. Once your shrimp are cooked, put the skewers on a plate and squeeze fresh lemon over them. You can either serve them on their skewers or pull them off and place them in a serving dish with some toothpicks. 


Make sure your butter isn't hot when you add it to the shrimp. You want to cook them on the BBQ, not in your marinade!
