Grilling shrimp on the barbie is an easy way to make a meal, or to add an accompaniment to your favorite steak dish. This recipe takes very little time to make, and can be customized to your liking. Add a touch of cayenne pepper to the seasoning if you like spicier food, or add your favorite dried herbs to the seasoning for a touch of Mediterranean flavor. We recommend using a little larger size shrimp for this grill recipe, but you can also use smaller shrimp, just cut the cooking time down a bit to account for their smaller size. Enjoy!
- 1 lb Shrimp (defrosted)
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil (raw)
- 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (peeled and deveined)
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Place the shrimp in a large mixing bowl, and add the oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to the bowl. Mix to combine and coat all shrimp evenly. Place 3 – 5 shrimp on metal skewers, and set aside.
Note – you can use wooden skewers, but if you do, be sure to soak them in water before putting the shrimp on the skewers.
Preheat your grill to 450ºF, and once the grill is hot, place the shrimp directly over the heat source. Cook for 2 – 3 minutes per side until the shrimp are no longer translucent. Do not overcook.
Once the shrimp are cooked, remove from grill and serve hot. You can remove from skewers and serve as a side dish with steak, or on top of a burger, or you can leave the shrimp on the skewers and serve as an entree. Enjoy!
