Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Thread shrimp onto skewers. Season both sides of shrimp with garlic salt and black pepper; if using cayenne, see Cook's Note.

  • Generously coat both sides of shrimp with mayonnaise.

  • Cook shrimp on heated grill until shrimp are bright pink on the outside and opaque on the inside, and the mayonnaise turns golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes on each side. Serve with lemon wedges.

Cook's Note:

Cayenne pepper can be added with the garlic salt and black pepper, or mix 1/4 teaspoon into mayonnaise before coating shrimp, for a spicier flavor.

We loved this shrimp! Five stars for great flavor, five stars for super easy to make. I followed the advice from the review by Saveur, and marinated my shrimp in the mayo mix ahead, for about two hours. I did add in some good shakes of Old Bay Seasoning to the mayo mix, fresh minced garlic instead of garlic salt, and added in some shakes of Parsley also. We grilled over a wood fire just until pinked up, took about two to three minutes each side, so watch your grilling time depending on shrimp size and fire temperature. Read More

Kids wouldn't eat this stuff....my husband and I weren't too impressed either...this recipe was included as a quick meal to prepare on a school night....waste of food and time. We had hot dogs instead. Some of those other recipes that were included I know my kids won't eat either...don't send any more suggestions if kids can't eat it. Read More

Wow-wee! Loved this shrimp. I just mixed the mayo (low fat) and lemon juice, galic powder, and lemon pepper togther, and marinated the shrimp for a couple of hours before skewering. Moist and delicious, one of my fave ways to prepare shrimp on the grill. Served with "Island Fried Rice" for a taste of the islands on a blustery fall day in Ohio. Thanks for sharing your recipe with AR. Read More

These were tasty treats - they could use more garlic for my taste - maybe mixed in with the mayonnaise. They do not take 5 - 10 minutes a side - more like 5 - 10 minutes total. If you are using wooden skewers - don't forget to soak them in water before threading the shrimp. Thanks for sharing your fun and easy recipe. Read More

We loved this recipe. Made a few changes, by adding Cajun seasoning to the mayo. We cooked under the broiler, 2 minutes on one side then 3 on the other. Read More

after reading other reviews, I ended up over seasoning .. still excellent, but next time I won't be quite so heavy handed.. I added some Old Bay Seafood Seasoning and it definitely added flavor.. Served with Pineapple Fried Rice and there was nothing left.. The original recipe as written would be very good, but cooking for my family requires a little extra seasoning.. Read More
