Grilled shrimp seasoned with zesty flavors is a mouthwatering dish that combines the succulence of shrimp with a burst of tangy and aromatic seasonings. This recipe takes simple grilled shrimp to a whole new level, transforming them into a delightful centerpiece for any summer gathering or seafood feast.

1. Grilled Shrimp Recipe


  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 large garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


In a bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, Old Bay seasoning, sugar, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper. Stir well to create a marinade.

Add the peeled and deveined shrimp to the marinade and toss until each piece is well coated. Allow the shrimp to marinate for at least 15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Thread the marinated shrimp onto skewers, making sure to leave a small space between each piece.

Place the shrimp skewers on the preheated grill and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side. The shrimp should turn pink and opaque when cooked through.

While grilling, you can brush any remaining marinade onto the shrimp for extra flavor.

Once cooked, remove the shrimp skewers from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter.

Serve the grilled shrimp hot as an appetizer, main course, or as part of a seafood feast.

The combination of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and zesty seasonings like Old Bay seasoning, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper infuses the shrimp with a burst of flavor. The marinade helps to tenderize the shrimp while also providing a tantalizing aroma. Grilling the shrimp adds a smoky and slightly charred touch, enhancing the overall taste.

This grilled shrimp recipe is perfect for outdoor gatherings, barbecues, or any occasion where you want to savor the deliciousness of succulent grilled shrimp. Enjoy the shrimp as is or serve them with a side of fresh salad, rice, or crusty bread for a complete and satisfying meal.
