We’re BIG fans of shrimp here at Delish: shrimp pasta, shrimp appetizers, spicy shrimp… you name it, we’ve got a recipe for it! So you can trust us when we say that come summertime, there’s no better way to enjoy these little crustaceans than with some char and heat from the grill (or a grill pan, if you can’t get outdoors). Check out our top 27 grilled shrimp recipes for ideas—you’ll be on your way to a delicious grilled summer app or weeknight dinner in no time.
Thanks to their small size, shrimp cook FAST, and that’s no different on the grill. Because they are so little though, you don’t want to just dump a bunch onto your grill and hope for the best. Avoid losing them through your grill grates by using some of our top grilling accessories: grill skewers and a roll of tin foil.
If you’re unfamiliar with foil packs, we’re about to blow your mind. You can make almost ANYTHING on the grill if you wrap it in a little foil boat. We’re talking surf ‘n turf, Tuscan butter shrimp (yes, just like our famous one-pot version), shrimp boil, and even shrimp, broccoli, and rice (just as good as takeout). Another great thing about foil packs is how they can be personalized. Make individualized packs for everyone in your family or at your gathering, and everyone wins.
There’s maybe nothing more beloved at a BBQ than apps on a stick. They’re convenient, cute, and super easy to throw together. Shrimp is perfect for this application, since they can be a little unwieldy on their own on the grill. Instead, simply marinate them in your flavors of choice, then stick them (and whatever other ingredients you’re into, like sweet corn, pineapple, or lemon wedges) on a skewer, and pop them onto the grill for just a few minutes. Check out our pesto shrimp skewers, taco lime shrimp, or our pineapple shrimp skewers for ideas, but really: any flavors you generally like paired with shrimp will work on the grill too.
