Low Carb Citrus Tiger Shrimp

Tonight I made a quick and easy BBQ shrimp recipe which had tons of flavor and was carb friendly. This isn't your typical shrimp on the barbie recipe, as it has more of a citrus zing then a chile punch, which you usually expect with barbecued shrimp. I decided to use wooden skewers because they are easy in terms of cleanup and add a bit of savory flavor. Be sure to watch the shrimp as they don't take long to cook and may burn if you don't pay attention.


20-25 Tiger Shrimp
2 Lemons Juiced
2 Limes Juiced
1/4 Cup of Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons of Balsamic Vinegar
3 Cloves of garlic chopped into a paste
2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Lime Zest
2 Tablespoons of Lemon Zest
A pinch of red pepper

Mix all of the ingredients together and put into a ziplock bag with the shrimp and allow them to marinade. Be sure not to let them sit too long because the citrus juice will begin to cook the shrimp!
