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

Spicy grilled shrimp pairs deliciously with my sweet Grilled Fruit Kabobs or serve it on top of tender greens.

  • 1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon basic barbecue rub
  • Wooden skewers
  • Fresh lime wedges


Preheat your grill to medium heat. 

Toss the raw shrimp with the basic barbecue rub so all the shrimp is well coated. Thread the shrimp on skewers in one direction making sure to thread the skewer through two parts of the shrimp. You can also use two skewers, threading one skewer through the heads of the shrimp and the other skewer through the tails. 

Grill on each side until pink for a total of 3 to 5 minutes time. Serve with lime wedges. 

Serves 2. Total time: 15 minutes.
