Florida Coast Grilled Shrimp

This Grilled Shrimp recipe is a back-pocket ace that utilizes pantry-friendly ingredients to create restaurant-quality shrimp in minutes.


The shrimp is spice rubbed with smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper then dunked in Lemon Parsley Butter.


Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dried basil, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper together in a large bowl. Add the shrimp and stir until evenly coated. Marinate for 15-30 minutes at room temperature (no more!).

Evenly space skewers on the clean grill and cook for 2 minutes per side or until the shrimp are golden – no more! Grill to golden perfection so shrimp are crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside and exploding with flavor all over. Remove grilled shrimp to a plate.
