Cilantro Lime Grilled Shrimp

Cilantro-Lime Grilled Shrimp

I went by my favorite fish market and picked up snapper and shrimp for us to throw on the grill for a recent celebration with family and friends. We marinated the shrimp with oil, lime, and chili flakes and seared it quickly until bright pink. Everyone enjoyed the summery and festive main dish for our celebratory dinner.

Cilantro Lime Grilled Shrimp

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Serving Size: Serves 4

It’s best to grill or cook meat at room temperature. This way the meat can cook evenly. The shrimp can be skewered, or cooked in a grill basket.


  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined (16-20 count)

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 1/8 teaspoon red chili flakes

  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

  • Celtic sea salt


Gently toss shrimp, olive oil, lime juice and chili flakes in a large bowl. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat grill to medium heat. Drain shrimp and either skewer or place a grill basket on the grill to preheat. Grill shrimp 2 minutes per side until bright pink and cooked through (do not overcook). Sprinkle with cilantro and sea salt. Serve.
