Tasty Tuesday: Grilled Shrimp

I know it's Wednesday -- I've been technically challenged this week and couldn't get this to post! Oh, and I procrastinated a bit...

I've written about this place before:

I found a new spice mix there that I used to make these beauties:

It's the "Coastal Blend" and it is light and lemony and garlicky and all the good things that shrimp needs. And very, very easy.

I put about a dozen cleaned shrimp into a Ziploc bag and added about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mixed that around to coat the shrimp, then sprinkled in about 2 teaspoons of the spice. Tossed the shrimp in the bag and took a look -- they all had visible spices on them, so I decided that was enough. (Like how exact I am?) Then I added a couple of teaspoons of lime juice and let the shrimp sit until the grill was hot.

This time, I just put them in a grill basket. Sometimes I'll skewer them, but was too lazy to work that hard. About 7 minutes on the grill, tossing them around a bit, and they were done to perfection.

Of course there are all sorts of spice mixes that work with shrimp - this is just moving up my list of favorites. The process, though, would work for anything you're putting on them: garlic, cayenne, lemon pepper...Keep it simple and enjoy the summertime grilling!


  1. Yum! I think I might have to stop by there while we're visiting next week (that also means you should CALL ME and have lunch with me or something while we're in town)!

  2. YES! We need to do that -- I will make sure you get all the best spices! [and Paleo-friendly - no sugar or MSG!] You've got my numbers - call when you get here.
