  • Clean grill, spray with a non stick spray and turn grill to medium/high.
  • Whisk all seasoning ingredients together and place in a small baggie. 
  • Pat dry shrimp and place a few shrimp at a times into baggie. Seal and gently shake to coat. Remove and place on a plate. Repeat for remaining shrimp. 
  • Place shrimp on skewers, squeeze lemon juice to both sides of shrimp as they grill, and grill for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until the shrimp no longer translucent.
