 Ingredients List

  • 1 food safe, cedar planked board, soaked for 2 hours
  • 1 lb. of 21-25 shrimp, cleaned and deveined and patted dry
  • 1 large bunch of Italian parsley
  • the zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 large garlic clove, finely grated on a microplane
  • a pinch or more of red pepper flakes
  • olive oil to loosen the pesto


1. Mix pesto up by using all the ingredients, set a little bit aside for brushing on the grill.

2. Toss shrimp in mixture, coating it all over.

3. Take your board out of the water and pat dry, rubbing the top only with olive oil.

4. Place your cedar board on a clean and dry baking sheet for ease in carrying it out to the grill.

5. Arrange shrimp on top, I placed 2 together to form a circle.

6. Cook on medium high heat until shrimp is cooked and nice and pink brushing with remaining pesto half way through.

7. Take the 2 lemons that were used for the zest, cut them in half, drizzle with olive oil and place cut side down on the grill, remove when nice grill marks are formed.

8. Serve your shrimp right from the plank, enjoy!
