The Most Popular and Best Grilled Shrimp Recipes


There are lots of ways to cook shrimp but there is only one right way. Call be biased but if you are not grilling shrimp you are not cooking shrimp right. These grilled shrimp recipes are the most popular of all the shrimp recipes on my site. Give these a try and I promise you won't be steaming or frying shrimp anymore.

1. Garlic Butter Shrimp

If you enjoy shrimp scampi, then this is the grilled shrimp recipe for you. You can serve this dish as part of a main course or serve them as appetizers at your next cookout. These shrimp are inspired by the fresh shrimp served up in carts on the North Shore in Hawaii. If you don't have butter running down your arms your not doing it right.

2. Grilled Jumbo Shrimp

This is a delicious herb marinated grilled jumbo shrimp recipe. The secret to grilling shrimp is to keep a close eye on them. Shrimp cook fast enough for you to keep the lid up and an eye on them at all times. Overcooked shrimp are rubbery so take them off the second they are done.

5. Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Grilled Shrimp Scampi
Regarding BBQ Inc.
Shrimp Scampi is a recipe typically cooked up in a saute pan with a rich, buttery sauce. We take this classic dish to the grill to give the shrimp a light char before hitting the sauce where it will soak up the butter and white wine to make this truly fantastic. The secret is that the shrimp sweat out the water they have been sitting in so they can draw in the flavor.

6. Tequila Lime Shrimp

This shrimp dish makes a fantastic addition to any cookout or party. The light tequila marinade gives these grilled shrimp an extra flavor that definitely makes them stand out.

7. Grilled Rosemary Garlic Shrimp

Marinating these shrimp for several hours in this rosemary garlic sauce allows them to really absorb the flavors. These shrimp are good by themselves or as an addition to any recipe that calls for shrimp, like shrimp tacos. If you really like rosemary try replacing the bamboo skewers with fresh rosemary branches.

8. Spicy Cajun BBQ Shrimp

Big Daddy posted this recipe for Cajun Shrimp. While it calls for a broiler you can easily take these tasty shrimp out to the grill. These grilled shrimp get a toss in a spicy Cajun mixture that gives them just the right amount of heat. You can get that flavor to stand out more by marinating these shrimp in the sauce for a few hours (refrigerated of course).

9. Grilled Margarita Shrimp

A nice tart, sweet, and spicy shrimp dish marinated in a margarita sauce. Keep with the theme and serve these grilled shrimp as an appetizer in Margarita glasses.

10. Shrimp and Pineapple Kebabs

This is a quick and simple way to prepare shrimp kebabs any day of the week and do it with a Hawaiian twist. The combination of the sweetness of the pineapple makes these little skewers a great way to serve grilled shrimp.
