Grilled Marinated Shrimp

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by LifeIsGood

Whenever summertime comes around, I look forward to making this shrimp recipe on our outdoor grill. I've served this to guests, alongside a nice green salad and a pitcher of margaritas. Simple and delicious. Note: You can try broiling the shrimp in your oven for about 8 minutes instead of grilling but I have never personally tried them that way. Prep time includes marinating in the refrigerator.

This recipe was very much enjoyed last evening. I used the broiler method as we have has nothing but dark sky's, chilly wind and rain for the past week. I didn't have shell on so broiled for much shorter time- about half the time given for jumbo shrimp that I have. I didn't change a thing (used momaphet's shorter marinating time) and will recommend this recipe 100%. Simply delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together the olive oil, fresh lime juice and seasonings in a bowl.
  2. Split the shrimp up the back with a sharp knife to allow the marinade to penetrate. Leave the shell on, but try to remove the vein.
  3. Add the raw shrimp to the marinade and refrigerate, covered, for about two to three hours.
  4. Remove from the marinade and grill the shrimp for about 4-5 minutes, until done. Make sure not to overcook your shrimp or they will be rubbery.
  5. *You can also broil the shrimp indoors. It would take about 8 minutes*.
  6. Serve on a big platter with lime wedges.
  7. Peel and eat!
