Simple Shrimp on the Barbie

"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!"

Ready In:




  • 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.
  • Heat barbeque to medium heat. Cook shrimp until just cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side.
  • Sprinkle shrimp with parsly and garnish with lemon wedges.

  1. Easy and so good! I took it a bit easy on the cayenne, but there still was a great little kick - wish I'd made more! I saved the extra marinade for more shrimp tomorrow! Made for Big Aussie Barbe SWT2018
  2. Easy and delicious. Had large raw tail on frozen shrimp. Thawed, marinated, and grilled. Everyone loved them.
  3. Wonderful recipe!! Can't say I've put that combination together but I certainly will again!!
  4. Nom-Nom Nif! We enjoyed your shrimp recipe with our steak and my husband said "don't need another recipe". I liked the flavor of the herbs and spices, I liked it even better that the flavor of the shrimp shined. My husband said "you can make this anytime you want" so there you go! Made for Susie's World Tour 2018
  5. Turned out fantastic, I didn't have any white wine but I did have some tequlia, so I used that instead. Added a half tsp. More cayenne cuz we like it hot! Yummy!


  1. Tequila instead of wine and more ceyanne.


I love great food and I particularly like trying cuisines new to me! Although I don't prepare as much food as I used to, creating in my kitchen is still one of my favourite things to do. Enjoy!
