BBQ is season is here! And there is some beautiful shrimp hitting the grocery markets right now. Hope you all get to enjoy this tasty, simple grilled shrimp recipe with your friends and family!
Note: You can make this versatile dry spice rub ahead of time (without the olive oil, of course!) and keep it ready for whenever you want to BBQ anything – can be used on steak, chicken, and even pork and lamb!
1/4 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon garlic pepper powder
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon chopped onion powder (optional)
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 pounds peeled and deveined large shrimp
1/2 wedge lime
Prepare grill (or grill pan on stove) to medium-high heat.
Combine first 7 ingredients and extra-virgin olive oil in a large bowl. Add shrimp into the bowl; toss well to coat evenly.
Thread shrimp evenly onto 8 (8-12-inch long) skewers (TIP: soak these in water for a few minutes before threading the shrimp so that they do not burn/char on the grill).
Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes or until done, turning once.
