Grilled Shrimp with Lime are so tasty and are an easy-to-make dish.  The lime/garlic adds a zesty flavor that makes this dish a standout.  This is truly a “finger-licking” food that is great for the grill on those hot summer evenings.

Grilled Shrimp with Lime Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Yield: 6 servings


3 pound jumbo shrimp, uncooked
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon coarse or sea salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely-ground black pepper
6 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil



Preheat Barbecue (oil hot grill to help prevent sticking).

In the food processor, place minced garlic, salt, pepper, lime juice, and olive oil; blend until smooth and emulsified.

Peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the tails on.  Place deveined shrimp in a large bowl.  Toss shrimp with the lime marinade.  NOTE: Do not leave the shrimp in the marinade for more than 15 minutes, as the texture of the shrimp will change. The lime juice will actually start cooking the shrimp.

After marinating the shrimp and ready to cook, place the marinated shrimp onto the hot grill and cook approximately 3 minutes (depending on size of the shrimp) on one side; turn and cook another 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque in center (cut to test).  Remove from grill.
