Quick to cook and healthy, these shrimp skewers are a grilling favorite. Pair them with grilled veggies or serve over a fresh salad for a crowd-pleasing summertime meal.
Throughout the summer Isaac and I grill out constantly. The grill becomes our oven and we basically use it to cook anything and everything. We’ve even grilled avocado before. I know it sounds strange, but they actually come off the grill warm, creamy and absolutely delicious. Don’t knock it until you try it!
One of my absolute favorite things to grill is seafood so I’m pumped to share this simple lemon pepper shrimp skewer recipe. It’s light, fresh and cooks up in a matter of minutes!
These shrimp cook up in a mater of minutes and they work great in just about any recipe. Serve them up along grilled veggies for a full meal or use them as stopper for pasta or salad. I love serving using these shrimp as a protein source for my kale caesar salad.

Grilled shrimp are a summer must! I love how quickly they’re done and hint of lemon is perfect 🙂

Give me ALL the skewers!!!!!!!!
I’ll share if you make me some grilled naners!
Oh giiirrrllll!!! My mouth is watering!
Grilled shrimp is my fav! And I love how simple and easy this is! Pinned!
These tasted SO incredible that they never made it onto the plate. We literally stood in the kitchen eating them off of the skewers raving about how delicious they tasted! I would love to try them over a salad (as intended) but I have a feeling my husband will polish off the remaining shrimp before I get a chance. Definitely making this again, thank you, Brittany!
I’m so glad thee shrimp was a success!! Next time you’ll have to make a double batch. 🙂
