Shrimp Skewers


To me bbq shrimp is one of the best things to come off a grill. They are quick, easy and a huge crowd pleaser.

They can be made on a gas bbq or charcoal.

First, the shrimp. I went with a shell and tail on shrimp. They were 20-30s.  This means you get 20 to 30 per pound. I went with shell on shrimp as this helps protect the shrimp a bit while cooking and adds a great flavour. I chose to marinade the shrimp in a combination of minced garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and a store bought seafood seasoning but you could easily use whatever you like.


After letting the shrimp hang out in the marinade for about an hour, I skewered the shrimp in 3s using 2 skewers per set. Using 2 skewers makes the shrimp much easier to flip.


Cook over very high heat and flip once the shrimp shells turn bright red and get a slight char on them. This should take about 2 to 3 minutes. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the second side.

Pull off the grill and serve!
