Ingredients for Grilled Shrimp

  • Shrimp: This recipe works well with either large or medium shrimp. I prefer larger shrimp for skewering. To save time, purchase peeled and deveined shrimp; I like the tails on. Thaw and drain frozen shrimp before using.
  • Oil: The base of the shrimp marinade is olive oil, however, any neutral oil will work.
  • Garlic: These shrimp have a double dose of garlic – fresh is best if possible!
  • Seasoning: , a bit of lemon juice, and tomato paste add flavor the the marinade.
  • Butter: Use salted butter if possible or add a pinch of salt if your butter is unsalted.

I use parsley but if you have other fresh herbs like basil or cilantro, they also taste great in the garlic butter.

How to Grill Garlic Grilled Shrimp

  1. Combine everything in a bowl, toss to coat, and marinate per the recipe below.
  2. Thread the shrimp on skewers.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium and grill shrimp skewers for about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Drizzle with garlic butter and serve.

If using wooden skewers, I recommend soaking them to prevent them from catching fire on the grill. Place them in a shallow pan (I use a 9×13 dish) and soak them while the shrimp marinates.

If you frequently make skewers, I recommend investing in stainless steel skewers. While I love the dollar store for many items, I find that the cheaper skewers rust.

  • Tacos: Use shrimp without tails and make them into shrimp tacos with your fave toppings.
  • Salad: Serve these skewers over a fresh salad – or even better yet Caesar salad!

  • In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic, and parsley. Set aside.

  • In a glass bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, parsley, tomato paste, basil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and marinate for at least 20 minutes or up to 1 hour.

  • Preheat the grill to medium heat (375°F).

  • Thread the shrimp onto skewers and grill for 2-3 minutes per side or just until the shrimp are opaque. Remove from skewers and place in a serving bowl.

  • If needed, warm the garlic butter in the microwave for a few seconds to melt. Drizzle the garlic butter over the shrimp and serve warm with lemon wedges if desired.

  • Don't marinade the shrimp longer than 60 minutes. Over-marinating can make the shrimp mushy.
  • Don't overcook the shrimp – cook just cook until opaque.
  • If you don't have skewers, you can cook shrimp on a grill mat or in a grill pan.
  • Store leftover shrimp in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
