  • Thaw shrimp (if frozen), rinse, and pat dry. Set aside.
  • In a mall bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine remaining ingredients and whisk until well combined.
  • Place shrimp and marinade in a gallon sized zip-top bag, seal, and move contents around until marinade is evenly distributed. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes and up to 6 hours.

Grilling the Shrimp

  • Heat grill to 400 degrees (or medium high heat)
  • It is easiest for flipping purposes to skewer the shrimp before grilling, but you can also place shrimp directly on the grill.
  • Grill 2-3 minutes on each side or until pink, opaque, and cooked through.
  • Serve with lemons, melted garlic butter, and/or cocktail sauce.
