Simple Shrimp On The Barbie

Headed to the beach for the day? You'll definitely want to set aside time to make this simple shrimp on the barbie (charcoal grilled shrimp recipe).We went to visit our friends at the beach recently, and the husband of the couple was fishing. He didn’t catch anything worth keeping that day, so we did what any normal fish-less beach dwellers would do: we made shrimp on the barbie. And by that, I mean, Pete made it.

Now, Shrimp On The Barbie is a lot more fun to say than grilled shrimp, or charcoal-grilled shrimp, which is obviously what this is. But Shrimp On The Barbie is Australian for shrimp on the barbecue and sometimes, you just wanna sound fancy.

This recipe is definitely not fancy. It’s really quick and easy to whip up too.

Simple Shrimp On The Barbie

What You’ll Need:

  • Shrimp
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Raspberry vinaigrette dressing

What You’ll Do:

Heat up your charcoal grill. While that’s going on, clean your shrimp. You can devein them, peel them, pull off the heads and tails … or just leave them as is. Whatever you like.

Rinse the shrimp.

In a bowl, coat them with raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Then, dredge them in Old Bay seasoning. Toss them to combine. 

You can substitute any citrus (like lemon or lime) for the raspberry vinaigrette. What’s good about the raspberry, though, is you’ll get good pop of color on the shrimp. They’ll get pink when you cook them, but this enhances that.

Put a piece of foil on the grill, then put the shrimp on it.

Cook thoroughly, flipping as needed.
