Grilled Shrimp Skewers Cooking Tips

  • Keep the grilling temperature consistent. You don't need to grill shrimp at super high temperatures.
  • Spray the grill grates before placing the shrimp on the grill to prevent sticking.
  • Keep the grill temp between 375-400 degrees F and the shrimp will come out perfect.
  • Once the shrimp are on the grill don't touch them for at least 4 minutes. this will also prevent sticking.
  • Soak the wooden skewers for a few hours in water before grilling so they won't burn on the grill.
  • Grill a few limes along with the shrimp to add a charred citrus flavor and garnish.
