[Updated June 2018] Toss peeled and deveined raw shrimp with my basic barbecue rub and thread them on skewers before placing them on the grill.

Grilled shrimp is a classic summer meal that is easy to make and simply delicious.

This recipe reminds me of summers at the beach. And it’s so easy to make in under 30 minutes.

How long does it take to barbecue shrimp skewers?

Shrimp skewers take just minutes to grill before they're ready to be served. They are the perfect choice for a summer barbecue.

What seasoning to use on grilled shrimp?

I love to use a homemade sweet and spicy barbecue rub that is perfect on beer can chicken, ribs and more.

The seasoning is a mixture of brown sugar, sweet paprika, onion and garlic powder and Kosher salt.

I make enough to last several months.
