Shrimp on the Grill

Or should I say, “shrimp on the bah-bie!” It only works if you do an Australian accent in your head. Anyway. Cajun Shrimp is a summertime favorite of mine. And so is anything on a grill. So, combine the two, and you’ve got a delicious, quick appetizer or dinner, perfect for the summer season!

Shrimp cooks quickly, and the grill is no exception. This recipe takes 5 minutes or less– you don’t want to cook the shrimp too long. Overcooked shrimp are rubbery and gross, so it’s actually better to be a little under cooked than over.

Garlic Cajun Shrimp

Simple Recipe

I love recipes like this. Not only is it quick, it’s easy. There are only 3 ingredients, unless you count the skewers themselves.

Shrimp, Chef Shamy Garlic Butter, and Cajun seasoning. That’s it!

And that’s all you need. The Garlic Butter, combined with the Cajun spice, provides amazing flavor!

You’ll notice the amount of Cajun seasoning is up to you. If you want pretty spicy shrimp, use 2 Tablespoons of seasoning. If you want your shrimp flavorful, but more mild, use 1 Tablespoon.

But use lots of Garlic Butter. That’s a given.
