30 Best Grilled Shrimp Recipes

We at Delish are BIG shrimp fans: shrimp pasta, shrimp appetizer, spicy shrimp… you name it, we have a recipe for it! So you can trust us when we say that in the summer, there’s no better way to enjoy these little shellfish than with char and the heat of the grill (or a grill pan , if you can’t go outside). Check out our 27 best grilled shrimp recipes for ideas – you’ll be on your way to a delicious grilled summer appetizer or weeknight dinner in no time.

Thanks to their small size, shrimp cook FAST, and it’s no different on the grill. Because they’re so small, you don’t want to just throw a bunch of them on your grill and hope for the best. Avoid losing them through your grill grates by using some of our best grill accessories: grill skewers and a roll of aluminum foil.

If you’re unfamiliar with aluminum packs, we’re about to blow your mind. You can do almost anything on the grill if you wrap it in a little aluminum boat. We’re talking surf ‘n turf, Tuscan butter shrimp (yes, just like our famous one-pot version), boiled shrimp, and even shrimp, broccoli and rice (just as good as take-out). Another great thing about aluminum packs is how they can be customized. Create custom packs for everyone in your family or at your get-together, and everyone wins.

There is perhaps nothing more appreciated at a barbecue than applications on a stick. They are practical, cute and super easy to assemble. Shrimp are perfect for this application as they can be a bit heavy on their own on the grill. Instead, simply marinate them in the flavors of your choice, then stick them (and any other ingredients you like, like sweet corn, pineapple, or lemon wedges) on a skewer and place put them on the grill for a few minutes. Check out our Pesto Shrimp Skewers, Lime Shrimp Tacos, or Pineapple Shrimp Skewers for ideas, but really: all the flavors you usually love associated with shrimp will also work on the grill.
