If the weather puts a damper on your barbeque plans, these indoor barbeque shrimp are so easy and fast. Use the raw, ready-to-peel shrimp that are deveined but still have their shells on (raw, ready-to-peel) to achieve the char-grilled look without worrying about dry shrimp.

  • Heat a dry saute pan over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking, or when a few drops of water sizzle and start to bead up before evaporating. Place shrimp in pan. Let cook on one side until the shrimp turns from opaque to white about halfway up the side, 3 or 4 minutes. Turn shrimp over. Cook until shrimp are almost cooked through. Transfer to a serving plate.

I know it's called INDOOR bbq shrimp, but we cooked it on our Big Green Egg. I tasted the marinade before adding the shrimp, and added a little more ketchup and brown sugar, and a wee bit of Worcestershire sauce. When husband was finished with his part of the cook, I put the shrimp on our cast iron griddle. They took just a few minutes on each side. I think maybe I could have pulled them a minute earlier, but it was my first time grilling shrimp, so I wasn't sure. ~~ They were really tasty! Even my husband, who says he only likes battered, deep fried shrimp liked them. We will try this or a variation again. Thanks so much for the recipe! Read More

I made this last night for my father-in-law’s birthday. He requested BBQ shrimp, and I wasn’t about to get the grill out here in the Northeast, haha. This recipe not only perfectly fit the bill, but went above and beyond. The shrimp was meant as a compliment to the chicken main course and ended up stealing the show! Thank you for the recipe!

These were good even though a bit spicy. Messy to eat. Makes a mess in the pan but with a little baking soda soak it cleaned up pretty easily. Probably won't make again. Read More

As a non shrimp fan I really liked this. They were yummy and very easy to make. I will cut back a bit on the cumin next time as was a bit strong. Also I only used a dash of heat my preference. Definitely watch the marinate time as they started to change at 20 minutes. Read More

This was very good and easy to do. I added strip of Bacon put on skewers and cook on grill outside. Was good weather so no reason to cook inside. I will make again. Read More

Sauce too salty. I made another batch with 1/4 the salt. I usually like Chef John’s recipes. I did grill but I shouldn’t have because no wonderful sauce. and I used jumbo shrimp which tend to be tough. So my one star was just because it was too salty that I couldn’t eat the way it was written. Still I don’t think I would make again. The sauce just didn’t do it for me. Sorry Read More

This was fantastic! I don't care for cayenne so I used chipotle. I was concerned about serving shrimp in the shell but after eating them I didn't care how messy I got! I used Argentine Red Shrimp and the BF went crazy! Pat myself on the back....thank you for a great dinner Chef John! Read More
