Simple Shrimp on the Barbie

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 6 mins

A very easy, healthy and delicious way to grill your shrimp. You can also skewer the shrimp if you want to. Just make sure to soak wooden skewers in warm water for 30 minutes. I didn't include the 1 - 2 hour marinating time. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix olive oil, wine, lemon juice, salt, pepper, cayenne and garlic in a bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat. Marinate in the fridge for an hour, two hours at the most. If you leave it longer, the lemon juice will start to "cook" the shrimp.
  2. Heat barbeque to medium heat. Cook shrimp until just cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Sprinkle shrimp with parsly and garnish with lemon wedges.

This shrimp was a big hit, Nif! I took this to a friend's home, for our Saturday 'fun-day'! I let them marinate for 1.5 hours and they were grilled and then we demolished them! I must say that they really weren't too spicy. I may even add a bit more cayenne, next time! Thanks, Nif, for sharing a great recipe, that I got to share with friends!

We loved the flavors of this shrimp! I was afraid it might be a bit spicy for my children, but it was perfect. Made for ZWT 8 Bistro Babes.
