Seasoning Your shrimp for the grill, adding the spice one might say!
Season Your Shrimp:

Let the shrimp sit in the seasoning for at least 10 minutes or up to an hour if you have time.

If you want to, follow your favorite shrimp marinade recipe.

We prefer a dry seasoning mixture for grilled shrimp.

Prepare Spicy Shrimp For The Grill:

Run one skewer through the fattest part of 7 or 8 raw shrimp (depending on shrimp size), nesting the shrimp so they are curved in the same direction.

Run a second skewer through all of the shrimp near the tail.

Adjust the shrimp, giving each a little space, to help them cook evenly.

Repeat with remaining shrimp and skewers.

Grilling Spicy Shrimp:

Grill for 1-2 minutes on each side.

If you want to grill the shrimp without wooden skewers, just place them on a heat-safe cookie cooling rack right on the grill.
