Author Toni Dash


  • 2 teaspoons Sea Salt (fine granules)
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Smoked Hot Paprika
  • 1/8 Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds Jumbo (21/25) Shrimp in shell (trim off the legs); rinsed, drained and patted dry with paper towels


  1. Preheat grill to 375 degrees. Brush and oil when at temperature.
  2. While grill is heating, add the seasonings to a gallon zippered plastic bag; seal and shake to combine. Add the olive oil and massage to combine the dry seasonings with the oil.
  3. Add the shrimp, seal the bag; toss and massage the seasoning mixture to coat all of the shrimp.
  4. Remove the shrimp from the bag, bend into a sideways U shape and thread the skewer through both ends of the U (refer to photos), with 5 shrimp per skewer.
  5. Grill for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side, just until the shrimp becomes opaque. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
