You guys know we love some shrimp skewers. Shrimps are tasty, quick cooking, and a great lean protein source! These margarita shrimp make a great topper to your lunchtime salad, pair perfectly with some cilantro rice post workout, and make for a great midday leftovers protein snack right out of the fridge. What we’re trying to say is that you need these shrimp in your life.

Margarita Shrimp

  • 1 lb large raw shrimp, peeled & deveined

  • 1/3 cup olive oil

  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

  • 1 tsp coconut sugar

  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1/2 tsp chili powder

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • wedges of fresh lime

  1. Place your shrimp in a large gallon ziplock bag.

  2. In a small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, red pepper, coconut sugar, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, & black pepper. Whisk well to combine.

  3. Pour marinade over shrimp in bag. Seal tightly and shake so shrimp are covered in spice and olive oil mixture. Refrigerate for 30 minutes - 2 hours.

  4. When ready, thread all your shrimp onto skewers.

  5. Heat your grill to medium high. Place shrimp kebabs on grill grates and grill for 3-4 minutes per side or until shrimps are pink and have nice grill marks on the outside. Remove your kebabs, place on a platter, and sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro & a squeeze of lime.

If you want to make these shrimps challenge friendly, just leave out the coconut sugar!
