Ingredients
1 1/2
pounds fresh or frozen large shrimp
3
tablespoons lemon juice
3
cloves garlic, minced
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4
ounces dried vermicelli pasta or whole-wheat vermicelli pasta
2
tablespoons snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
 
Lemon wedges

Directions

  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact if desired. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Thread shrimp on four 10-inch skewers,* leaving 1/4 inch between shrimp. Drizzle with lemon juice; sprinkle evenly with garlic, salt, and pepper.
