Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Spicy Grilled Shrimp – So fast and easy to prepare, these shrimp are destined to be the hit of any barbeque. And, weather not permitting, they work great under the broiler, too.



Step 1
Preheat grill for medium heat.

Step 2
In a small bowl, crush the garlic with the salt. Mix in cayenne pepper and paprika, and then stir in olive oil and lemon juice to form a paste. In a large bowl, toss shrimp with garlic paste until evenly coated.

Step 3
Lightly oil grill grate. Cook shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve.

Editor’s Note:
If you don’t have coarse kosher salt, use 1 teaspoon table salt instead.


  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
