Planked Shrimp

Planked Shrimp

serves 6 as an appetizer


I make these in my pizza oven, but a grill would work as well.


Prepare your plank by soaking in water for 30 minutes.


Prepare your grill to medium.


1 pound 16-20 shrimp (this means that there are 16-20 shrimp per pound), shells removed.

(I like to leave the tails on because I think it makes a better presentation and gives your guests a “handle”, but then you are left with the pesky tails and need your call)



Juice AND zest of 1 lemon

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper

1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

2 cloves garlic, pressed

1 tablespoon freshly chopped rosemary


Combine all marinade ingredients and add shrimp. Marinate for no longer than 15-20 minutes or the juice will start to cook the shrimp.


Lay on plank and place plank on grill. Grill apprx 5-7 minutes until shrimp turns opaque.
