Cajun Grilled Shrimp are delicious! The marinade recipe is so easy to put together and it is so flavorful. The cajun seasoning, lime juice and the cilantro make this recipe fantastic! The grill gives shrimp an extra delicious flavor. Using skewers is a fun option for grilling shrimp. Grill baskets are another option when grilling shrimp-saves the time of skewering the shrimp. But, I like using skewers the best, they get a nice grill grate mark and it's just fun to put a whole skewer on your plate. icon There are a lot of other Grilling Recipes on our web-site that you may love. Even though we grill all year long, we have to get a lot of grilling in before summer ends-we love it!!

Grill 3 minutes on each side. They will turn pink when done.

Cajun Grilled Shrimp-great color.

Enjoy this delicious grilled shrimp marinade recipe!
