“This is so quick and easy, and makes a great family style dinner. For a dipping sauce, I don't think one is needed, but a few of my friends like it when I serve it with a garlic orange butter sauce. I simply melt some butter (1/2 cup), minced garlic (1 teaspoon), and some fresh orange juice (1 tablespoon). For my sides - a fresh creamy coleslaw and some chili fries. A few potatoes cut in wedges and mixed with some oil and seasoning makes for great healthy fries compared to fried or even store bought ones.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Marinade -- I just add all the ingredients to a large baggie, close and shake. Add your shrimp and marinade at least 1 hour, up to 2 but no more. The chili spice is very strong.
  2. Grill -- A couple of options. You can can use a grill pan inside, or an outside grill, broiler, you can also pan saute. But if you pan saute, cook on a fairly high heat and quickly so they get a nice brown color. Just cook until they start to curl and begin to turn pink. They take only a couple of minutes, and remember, once you remove the shrimp from the heat, they will continue to cook for another minute. You don't want tough over cooked shrimp.
  3. Serve -- Just serve on a big platter with your favorite sides. If you want the dipping sauce -- just heat up the butter, orange juice and garlic in the microwave and serve. That easy.
