I developed this recipe for Gourmet Warehouse. I received promotional items, but was in no other way compensated for this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
Quick-cooking shrimp are a wonderful weeknight option. There are so many ways you can add flavor, but sometimes you just want someone else to do the hard work for you. So when I was given the chance to try out a few marinades and BBQ sauces from Gourmet Warehouse, I jumped right in.
Their products are hand crafted, small batch mixtures that aren’t full of unpronounceable ingredients. I thought that the flavors of oregano and lemon in their Classic Greek Marinade would go perfectly with shrimp.
This marinade packed a TON of flavor in the 2 hours I let it infuse the shrimp. It was garlicky and delicious, and could rival any of the Greek meats I’ve had out at my local Greek restaurant. The only warning I’d give is that it says to shake the bottle well, which I did, and when I opened it, it sprayed out all over the place. Kind of like shaking up a can of soda and opening too soon. So be careful with it!
Served over brown rice, this was a simple and delicious dinner. I’m glad I still have some marinade left in the bottle to use up later. I’m looking forward to trying out the other samples, too!
