Chef Michael Symon of Lola Bistro in Cleveland reserves a portion of this marinade to use as a sauce for the cooked shrimp.

Serves 4


  • ½ cup lemon juice (from 2 to 3 lemons)
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger (from about a 2 peeled knob)
  • 1½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1½ pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined, with tails left on
  • ½ cup crumbled Feta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped dill


Active time: 45 minutes
Total time: 2 hours

In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, ginger, salt, coriander, pepper, and garlic. Transfer about ⅓ of the mixture to a small bowl and reserve for serving. Add shrimp to remaining marinade and toss to coat. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Meanwhile, soak 8 (10- or 12-inch) wooden skewers in water 20 minutes. Drain shrimp (discarding marinade) and thread onto skewers. Grill, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a platter, drizzle with reserved marinade, scatter Feta and dill over the top, and serve.
