Easy Grilled Shrimp

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Torilulu

I love trying new things on the grill. Some disasters have occurred (don't ask), but this was a huge success!! Easy and quick. If you don't make some pasta or something filling to serve on the side, you'll have to beat them away from your grill with a spatula.

Very tasty recipe - I used no fat Italian zesty dressing. Marinated the prawns all day in it 30 minutes before cooking I added the lime juice. I also added 3 cloves of crushed garlic Everyone LOVED the prawns thanks for posting Torilulu

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix Italian dressing (I use Kraft Zesty Italian) and lime juice to make marinade.
  2. Place shrimp in resealable container.
  3. Pour marinade over shrimp and gently stir.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes. No longer than that or the acid in the lime will start to "cook" the shrimp.
  5. Thread shrimp on skewers and place on prepared grill. Be careful not to overcook.
  6. Dunk hot, grilled shrimp into melted butter and eat as many as you can!
  7. I usually serve linguini with butter and parmesan cheese with this.
