Depending on what you will be marinating the shrimps with, we would say between 20-40 minutes. Shrimp is delicate and does not need too much time to marinate. If you are using an acidic marinade (containing lemons or vinegar) you do not need more than 20-30 minutes. If you are using basic seasonings and olive oil, you can marinate up to one hour. We usually don’t feel the need to marinate shrimp much.
