That’s why in today’s blog, we’d like to share a few recipes for a commonly overlooked grilling ingredient–shrimp. People often turn to burgers and brats when they’re looking for something to grill, and those are great options of course. But what about when you want something a little bit different? If that’s the case, shrimp is the answer, and these recipes will prove it.
A Few of Our Favorite Grilled Shrimp Recipes
Spicy Grilled Shrimp
This recipe for Spicy Grilled Shrimp from allrecipes.com is a winner if ever there were one. As a matter of fact, one reviewer even notes that this recipe is “so fast and easy to prepare, [and] these shrimp are destined to be the hit of any barbeque.” We couldn’t agree more. With a 4.5 star rating based on 738 reviews, you can count on this recipe being a winner.
Chances are that if you already have the shrimp on hand, everything you need to make this recipe is already sitting in your fridge or pantry. Whatever you serve your shrimp with, you can rest assured that you’ve just found a new go-to in terms of massive flavor. In short, if you’re looking for an easy food to grill that doesn’t require much from you, this is a wonderful recipe to turn to.
Buttery Grilled Shrimp
Taste of Home is a great resource to use when you’re looking for recipes, and this one for Buttery Grilled Shrimp is no exception. It has a number of glowing reviews, and like the recipe above, it’s great for when you’re running short on time. It’s also ideal because you probably already have all of the ingredients on hand.
Our suggestion is to throw some fettuccine noodles into a pot while your shrimp are on the grill, then top the cooked fettuccine with grilled shrimp, a bit of melted butter, and some freshly grated parmesan cheese. Serve it with a side of asparagus (which could also be grilled up rather easily and topped with parmesan) and a glass of white wine and you have yourself a delicious–and classy–meal that was incredibly quick and easy. It doesn’t get much better than that!
