Gluten Free Simple Grilled Shrimp

These past few days have not been fun! This past weekend I felt a combination stomach ache/migraine coming on and by Monday night I had to go to bed pretty early. Today has been miserable, but my wonderful hubby actually took the afternoon off and watched little girl {who we’re pretty sure has what I have – which is super fun,} cleaned, and made supper! My goal for today had been to share my kitchen coffee art I FINALLY finished, but I had absolutely no energy or motivation to take the pictures yesterday or today, so those will have to wait. What I do have for everyone is a super yummy grilled shrimp recipe I found over at C’est pas de la tarte! {MareeAnn’s blog is in French, and she comes up with some pretty unique stuff… this is the first one I’ve been brave enough to attempt!}

Easy Grilled Shrimp

Kate Bro
Zesty and flavorful shrimp on a skewer for easy grilling
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 6 minutes
Course Main Course, Side Dish
Cuisine French
Servings 4 servings


  • grill or skillet
  • skewers


  • 1 bag large shrimp cooked
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 TBS oregano
  • 1 TBS cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ½ tsp lime zest
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp coarse salt


  • Mix all ingredients for marinade and add shrimp, making sure they are well covered.
  • Let marinate in fridge for at least 15 minutes. {We made ours before running some errands, so they probably marinated for 1-2 hours.}
  • If using a traditional grill add shrimp to skewers, otherwise cook in skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes each side

That’s it! We served with rice and steamed green beans & potatoes. I’m not normally a huge seafood person, but I enjoyed this dish. Wes on the other hand LOVES shrimp, and he ate way more than his fair share :).
