Cajun Grilled Shrimp

This grilled shrimp recipe came from a neighbor, Katie. These shrimp are a nice change from the regular Cocktail shrimp. The ingredient list looks long, but very easy to make with sprices/herbs that are usually onhand. Easy make-ahead, or bring with appetizer. Frozen shrimp work great.

Oh Yum, Thank you cookin-jo for the wonderful picture you took of this recipe. The family just loved it, the teen asked for it again. I did the marinade 1 and a half times what it called for. I liked how cookin-jo used a basket and used something similar. Thank you again debita, we will enjoy this wonderful recipe again.

This is a killer recipe!!! If you enjoy highly flavoured, spiced foods you'll love this one. I made this mostly as posted except for reduing the amount of pepper, and it was perfect. I also didn't skewer the shrimp, just tossed them in a grill basket. Made for 4 people, one of whom isn't a shrimp fan, and there were only a few left. This will be made often during summer months. Thank you!
