  • 2 pounds shrimp skewers - raw, peeled, and deveined size 26/30 or larger
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup Homemade Bang Bang Sauce - see link Bang Bang Sauce Recipe
  • 1 green onion, sliced


  • Preheat the grill to a medium high heat and oil the grill grates.
  • Combine the olive oil, garlic, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Brush on both sides of the shrimp.
  • Grill the shrimp directly over the heat source for 1-3 minutes on each side JUST until the interior of the shrimp become opaque.
  • Remove the shrimp from the grill and drizzle or brush with the Homemade Bang Bang Sauce.
  • Garnish with the sliced green onions.


Grill times can vary depending on flame temperature and shrimp size. 
Shrimp cook very quickly. Overcooked shrimp can be tough. Raw shrimp are translucent and gray. They will turn opaque with reddish or pink tints as they cook. Watch the crevice in the back of the shrimp where the vein was removed and AS SOON as the flesh at the base of that crevice turns from translucent to opaque, the shrimp is done.
