This simple and delicious recipe is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or even for entertaining.


  • 1 lb. extra-large raw shrimp (cleaned and deveined)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. Old Bay or your favorite seafood seasoning
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Grilling skewers (if you have wooden skewers soak in water first to avoid burning)


  1. Heat grill to medium high heat.
  2. Thread 5 to 6 shrimp on skewer (to get the shrimp to lie flat while grilling try threading each shrimp through the side of the body and then through the tail end).
  3. Brush shrimp with olive oil and then sprinkle liberally with the Old Bay or seafood seasoning and then with a little of the cayenne.
  4. Place skewers on the grill and cover. Cook shrimp 5 minutes per side.  Squeeze lime juice over cooked shrimp.
  5. Serve over cooked cauliflower rice (you can add the same seasonings used on the shrimp) or serve with your favorite grilled veggies or salad.
