Spicy Grilled Shrimp

So fast and easy to prepare, these shrimp are destined to be the hit of any barbeque. And, weather not permitting, they work great under the broiler, too.


1 large clove garlic
1 teaspoon coarse salt
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 wedges lemon, for garnish


Step 1
Preheat grill for medium heat.

Step 2
In a small bowl, crush the garlic with the salt. Mix in cayenne pepper and paprika, and then stir in olive oil and lemon juice to form a paste. In a large bowl, toss shrimp with garlic paste until evenly coated.

Step 3
Lightly oil grill grate. Cook shrimp for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until opaque. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve.

Editor’s Note:
If you don’t have coarse kosher salt, use 1 teaspoon table salt instead.

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
