Cajun Grilled Shrimp – Sweet and spicy Cajun Shrimp made on the grill and paired with grilled onions and peppers that’s also flavored with Cajun seasoning.

Ingredients :

Shrimp:

  • 1.5 lbs shrimp cleaned and de-veined
  • 1 lime – juice only
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp Cajun seasoning

Vegetables:

  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 large red onion
  • salt* if seasoning does not contain salt

Instructions :

  1. If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for about 30 minutes before adding shrimp.
  2. Combine cleaned, shelled, de-veined shrimp with Cajun seasoning, lime juice, and honey in a mixing bowl and mix well. Let it marinade while preparing the grill and starting the vegetables.
  3. Slice onions and peppers into straws and mix with some oil and Cajun seasoning. Grease a vegetable basket that has fine grate so that vegetables don’t fall through and spread onion and peppers in it.
  4. Start to coals and once coals are ashed over, add vegetable basket to the grill. Let vegetables cook until half way done before adding shrimp to the grill.
  5. Skewer the shrimp onto the wooden skewers but don’t pack them too tight. Drizzle remaining marinade on top of each shrimp skewer.
  6. Spray both sides of the shrimp skewer with some oil and place it on the grill. Cook shrimp for about 4 minutes on each side, depending on the size of shrimp. Once shrimp turns completely opaque, it’s ready.
  7. Take shrimp and vegetables off the grill right away.
