Grilled Shrimp Recipes

Grilled shrimp recipes are Legion but the major difference seems to lie in the marinade which you will use.

For most grilled shrimp versions you'll want to plan to have at least 30 minutes for the shrimp to marinate, or possibly even longer, leaving them up to several hours or even overnight in a refrigerator.

For a quicker version using a coating, see this recipe Grilled Shrimp with a paste covering.

Honey Lemon Grilled Shrimp Ingredients

The Marinade

• fresh lemon juice
• soy sauce
• liquid honey

The Shrimp

• large shrimp, peeled and de-veined but with the tails still attached


Marinade Preparation

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix until well blended.
  2. Place the shrimp in the mixture and ensure that they are all evenly coated.
  3. Cover the bowl and set in a cool place to marinate at least 30 minutes, or close tightly and refrigerate overnight.

Shrimp Cooking

  1. Preheat grill to a medium heat. Shrimp cooks quickly  no matter what method you use, but grilling them takes no time at all. Over-cooking will make them tough and dry.
  2. Lightly oil grill grate. Cook shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the shrimp are firm and the sauce starts to become golden.
  3. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve.

Grilling shrimp can be done on an outdoor grill, a broiler, or even in a skillet. This recipe is so simple and quick!


  1. Key West Lime Marinade:  Replace lemon juice with fresh or bottled lime juice.
  2. Sesame Honey Lemon: Add 2 tablespoons (30 ml) toasted sesame oil to the marinade.
  3. Seven Up Citrus Marinade:  Replace the lemon juice and honey with equal amounts (1 1/3 cups total) of Seven Up.
  4. Spicy Marinade:  Add several dashes of Tabasco sauce to any marinade combination.
  5. Shrimp Magic Barbecue: Use our special barbecue sauce in place of the marinade.
