Grilled Shrimp with Dill and Tzatziki Sauce

June 27, 2017

This is my nod to our delicious trip to Greece a couple of summers ago. All the flavors I loved and enjoyed are in this delicious dish. Perfect dish for a summer evening with a glass of Rose!!

  • 1 pound fresh shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • Zest of one lemon, save the lemon for juicing a bit later
  • 3 garlic cloves, grated
  • Salt

Marinate the shrimp with the olive, dill, oregano, lemon zest, garlic and salt for at least 2 to 3 hours. Half an hour before grilling, juice the lemon into the shrimp. Skewer the shrimp and grill until just done.

Tzatziki Sauce

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup grated cucumber, excess water squeezed out (between your palm)
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

Mix all the ingredients together, taste for seasonings and let it sit for half an hour.

Serve with freshly grilled pita and shrimp.
