Ingredients

  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails on
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • Skewers
  • Lemon slices for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 minutes to prevent burning.
  • In a bowl, mix together the melted butter, Cajun seasoning, lemon juice and honey. 
  • Rinse and pat dry the shrimp with paper towels. Thread the shrimp onto skewers and place them on a sheet pan. Brush some of the Cajun flavored butter on both sides of the shrimp.
  • Heat the grill to high. Grill each shrimp skewer over direct heat for 2-3 minutes per side, flipping as soon as the first side begins to turn pink. Cook until the shrimp is no longer translucent and a bit charred. 
  • Remove from the grill and brush with the remaining Cajun flavored butter. Serve garnished with lemon slices (optional).
