    Let's make this cocktail

  • 1

    Marinating the Shrimp: In a bowl, mix the minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper.

  • 2

    Add the shrimp to the marinade, ensuring they are well coated. Let them marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15-30 minutes.

  • 3

    Preparing the Grill: Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water beforehand to prevent burning.

  • 4

    Making the Shrimp Skewers: Thread the marinated shrimp onto the wooden skewers, alternating with any additional vegetables such as lemon slices, cherry tomatoes, or bell peppers, if desired.

  • 5

    Grilling the Skewers: Place the shrimp skewers on the preheated grill and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they are pink and firm. Be careful not to overcook them, as they can become tough.

  • 6

    Preparing the Fresh Salad (optional): Mix the mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and red onion in a large bowl.

  • 7

    Drizzle the salad with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  • 8

    Serve the grilled shrimp skewers immediately, optionally with a fresh salad and crusty bread on the side. Enjoy the juicy shrimp with the delicious lemon-garlic flavor!
