Grilled Peel and Eat Shrimp

Burgers and hot dogs, step aside. Peel and eat shrimp are about to steal the grilling spotlight. A quick 30-minute marinade made with McCormick® Grill Mates Mesquite Seasoning adds a smoky-sweet flavor that comes to life on the grill. Serve cooked shrimp in a basket with hot sauce and lime wedges for a bold appetizer. Or toss leftover peeled shrimp over greens for a meal. Recipe and photo courtesy of Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park of Spoon Fork Bacon.

  • Mix oil, Seasoning and lime juice in small bowl. Place shrimp in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add marinade; turn to coat well. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

  • Remove shrimp from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread shrimp onto skewers.

  • Grill skewers over medium-high heat 3 minutes per side or until shrimp is cooked through, turning occasionally. Remove cooked shrimp from skewers and arrange on a large platter or baking sheet. Serve immediately with fresh lime wedges and hot sauce.

Cooking tip

Test Kitchen Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with shrimp and vegetables. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.
