Grilled Shrimp

Scott Phillips

Servings: four.

Nothing quite matches the sweet, intense,and slightly charred taste of shellfish when it’s cooked on the grill. Serve these simple grilled shrimp with Bloody Mary Cocktail Sauce, Old Bay Dipping Sauce, or Orange-Saffron Aioli.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. jumbo shell-on shrimp (16 to 20 per lb.), preferably deveined
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil 
  • Kosher salt

Preparation

  • Rinse the shrimp under cold running water. Dry the shrimp with paper towels and toss them in the oil to coat. Season with 1-1/2 tsp. salt.
  • Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire. When the grill is ready, use long-handled tongs to put the shrimp on the cooking grates, arranging them across the grates so they don’t fall through. Grill, turning halfway through cooking, until the shrimp curl and become pink, 2 or 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce of your choice, or chill to use in a seafood salad or a cold shrimp cocktail.

    This was super easy and absolutely amazing. We used shrimp from the Costco seafood road show, which was split downt he back and deveined. Fantastic and perfect for a minimal mess peal and eat. We served it with the Old Bay ButterMade again last minute and was totally awesome. We moms were chatting and the dads ate all but three shrimp despite the suggestions that this recipe feeds four, cut way down on the Old Bay Butter (1/4 recipe) and still enough and delicious)

    Fresh shrimp from the beach tonight and it could not have been any finer on the grill. Simple and delicious! The Old Bay butter sauce and Bloody Mary Cocktail sauce were both also superb.

    I love this shrimp. It stay so moist and does not get rubbery! It's great for prawn cocktails or add it to pasta or polenta! Deeelicious!

    We love this with the Old Bay dipping sauce, and the shrimp is very easy to prepare. An easy-to-make, delicious dinner.
