Sassy Cajun Grilled Shrimp

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

Just an age old family recipe. It can be tamed down or kicked up a notch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in bowl except shrimp, mix well then add shrimp and turn to coat evenly.
  2. Cover and refridgerate at least 15 minutes.
  3. Thread shrimp on skewers, metal or wooden. If using wooden skewers soak them in water for at least 20 minutes to prevent burning. We soaked them in beer.
  4. Grill shrimp over medium-hot briquets about 2 minutes per side until opaque.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges.

This is a great recipe with plenty of taste and kick! The only change I made was to substitute red onions for the green simply because red onions didn't require a trip to the grocery store. The skewers make a nice presentation on a bed of rice. Prepared for PAC Fall 2008
