Directions

1. To make the grilled shrimps: Soak the wooden skewers for 20 minutes before grilling. Heat your grill to medium-high heat, about 420ºF (200°C).

2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter then add in fresh ginger and garlic. Stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Next add in crushed red pepper, honey, salt, and lemon juice. Stir to combine and let simmer for 4-5 minutes.

3. In the meantime, place shrimp on wooden skewers, alternating with slices of lemon. Using a brush, gently brush the honey garlic glaze on both sides of the shrimp.

4. Transfer shrimp on the grill. Grill for 2-4 minutes and flip over and grill on the other side for 4-5 minutes. Brush the honey garlic glaze on both sides and grill each side for one more minute. Remove from grill. You can glaze the grilled shrimp one last time and serve immediately garnished with chopped cilantro. Enjoy!

What Shrimp size for grilling?

Larger shrimp work better for grilling, prefer extra-large or jumbo shrimp. They’re meaty and juicy! For an accurate gauge on size, look at the count number on the or bag.

How Long Do You Grill Shrimp on Skewers?

Shrimp cook very FAST, so it’s imperative to watch your shrimp, to make sure they don’t overcook. Over-cooked shrimp is rubbery, tough and not pleasant to eat at all. Shrimp typically take about 1-3 minutes per side on the grill. You’ll be able to tell when the shrimp are done because they’ll turn pink and opaque.

How to Bake Lemon Shrimp Skewers

For a baked version of these shrimp, preheat your oven to 450°F. Arrange prepared shrimp on a baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes, then flip the skewers over and bake shrimp on the other side for 2-3 minutes, depending on the size of your shrimp.

How to Pan Fry Shrimp

For a frying pan method, add some olive or vegetable oil to a large pan over medium-high heat. Once heated, add the shrimp (with or without the skewers), cook for 2-4 minutes per side on the pan.

What to Serve with   the Lemon Grilled Shrimp
