Easy Shrimp Recipe

Grilled shrimp is my favorite seafood dish in the summer. There are other ways for cooking shrimp, but I think shrimp is a food that tastes delicious on the grill. I have gone through many marinated shrimp recipes to find that yummy grilled recipe for shrimp.

Not only is this marinated grilled shrimp recipe delicious, but it's also very easy. Besides the marinating, there is virtually no preparation. Did I mention that I like easy recipes? And the shrimp cook in about 5 minutes. Talk about a quick meal! This shrimp also tastes great over angel hair pasta with a little more sauce. The next time you decide to do some grilling, try out this delicious recipe for the grill.

Marinated Shrimp on the Grill- Makes 6 servings


1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 cup ketchup

5 garlic cloves, chopped

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt, as preferred

2 pounds peeled and deveined shrimp


In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except the shrimp. After mixing well, pour into a ziploc recloseable bag. Add the shrimp. Seal the plastic bag securely. Shake well to cover all of the shrimp with the marinade.

Marinate in the refrigerate for at least one hour, overnight is better. If marinating for more than one hour, turn the plastic bag over a few times.

Grill the shrimp over medium heat on either an indoor or outdoor oiled grill for about 2 minutes per side. Shrimp will be done when they appear opaque.

Note- Don't substitute dried basil for fresh basil. It makes a significant difference in taste.

Note- If using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them in water first.
