Spicy Shrimp Recipe

Makes 4 servings | Gluten free and dairy free

Step 1

3 Tbsp avocado oil
1-2 tsp cayenne or chipotle pepper
1-2 pounds large shrimp, deveined, tails on and shells removed
5-10 wooden skewers, soak in water 20 minutes before using
Lime wedges and fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish


  1. Heat the grill to 400F.
  2. Drizzle shrimp with oil and season with cayenne or chipotle pepper.
  3. Skewer the shrimp; if you can find flat skewers these work best and make flipping the shrimp much easier.
  4. Place shrimp skewers on the grill for 3-4 minutes or until they release from the grate.
  5. Flip and grill another 4 minutes.
  6. Flip them one last time.
  7. Remove from the grill.

These make for a great appetizer or serve them as a meal with a side of our Jicama Salad and fresh fruit.
