BBQ Grilled Shrimp

I love seafood and shrimp is right up on the top of my list, so I was super excited to see that they are very low in calories!  This recipe is very simple and goes together fast for a quick meal.

Place the shrimp in a large bowl, toss with olive oil and garlic.  Add the spice rub and stir well to coat; set aside.

    Hi Jennifer,

    Just wondering if this recipe is supposed to call for 2 tsps of chili powder rather than 2 Tbs. I made it tonight but found it almost impossible to eat because it was so hot (in fact my husband couldn't eat it and he loves very spicy foods). Maybe we are just wimps?? I will definitely make this again but will adjust the chili powder. FYI: I was able to eat it if I cut a shrimp in half and ate it with my cheesy grits) — very good if a bit caliente!

    Hi BTLover2…I think you're right. I think I meant 2 teaspoons…I'll go in and change it.

    Thanks for the heads up and sorry about your dinner!

    I cant wait to try!! Looks so delicious! Question though, do you use cooked shrimp?

    • Jennifer says:

      No, definitely use raw shrimp for this recipe…otherwise you’ll end up with something rubbery! Let me know what you think…and thanks for stopping by!
