Spicy Grilled Shrimps

  • Author: Johanna Kindvall

  • Yield: 2-6 1x


Grilled shrimps spiced with chili, garlic, lime and cilantro are a fantastic start on a successful BBQ evening. Simple and delicious!


  • one lb un-shelled raw shrimps, small or medium
  • about ½ cup olive oil
  • juice from ½ a lime
  • fresh chili (what kind depends on how spicy you want the shrimps)
  • two cloves of garlic
  • plenty of cilantro
  • sea salt (seasoning)


  1. Rinse the shrimps and let them dry.
  2. Mix together olive oil, lime juice and finely chopped cilantro, garlic & chili. Season with sea salt.
  3. Place all the shrimps on the grill on high temperature (but no flames). Turn the shrimps over to the other side when they have got some nice color (after about a minute). They are done when they are cooked through and have got a nice even pink color.
  4. Drop the shrimps directly from the grill into the olive oil mixture. Stir around and serve immediately together with bread and salad.
