Got a few extra minutes?

Marinate some fresh shrimp (shelled and deveined) in a mix of garlic, lemon juice and olive oil with a bit of salt and pepper and an herb of your choice (parsley, thym, tarragon) in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Skewer on some bamboo skewers that you’ve pre-soaked in water to prevent burning. Grill on the barbecue or bake in the oven until the shrimps turn pink.
