Easy Grilled Shrimp Recipe

Easy Grilled Shrimp Recipe
Easy Grilled Shrimp:

The weather here in Western New York finally took a turn for the good. We've had some beautiful weather the last couple of days with temperatures in the high 60's.

For us, that means it's time to get the grill fired up. We had a bag of shrimp in the freezer and Fran thought it would be better to grill it instead of cooking it in the house.

Cooking shrimp on the grill is really not difficult at all. We had to the whole meal ready in about 15 minutes.

After Fran thawed and rinsed the shrimp she skewered it for the grill.





We used our flat stainless steel skewers but you can also use the wood or bamboo skewers. If you use the wood or bamboo just make sure that you soak them in water for about 10 minutes so they don't burn. We had a little less than a pound of shrimp and yielded a full three skewers or about 21 shrimp.

Now that the shrimp was ready I fired up one side of the grill and set it to the high setting. Then I melted 2 tablespoons of butter and brushed it on both sides of the shrimp. I seasoned both sides generously with Old Bay Seasoning and Garlic Powder.

Buy Old Bay Seasoning if you've never tried it before. There are so many recipes for Old Bay seasoning and it adds such a wonderful flavor to so many things.

Here is everything I used for this easy grilled shrimp:

1-lb. of shrimp (Fresh would be the best)
2 tablespoons butter melted
Old Bay Seasoning
Garlic Powder

I grilled the shrimp on the high setting on my grill for 3 minutes per side and served the shrimp over brown rice. This was a quick, easy, and tasty meal ready in under 20 minutes.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

  4. Yes to finally getting some good grilling weather here! The eastern side of the state is warm as well, and I couldn't be happier about this! I think we've had the grill out every night this week so far. I'll have to get some shrimp going here soon. Thanks, Sam! :-)
