The most extraordinary honey and Cajun flavor grilled shrimp dish. The combination of sweet, smoky, and savory flavors is ideal for summer grilling.
I look forward to grilling shrimp on my outdoor gas barbecue every summer. Juicy and delicious shrimp have a unique appeal with a suitable marinade, grilled to perfection.
Honey and Cajun spices combine to create a sweet, sticky, and delicious sauce for these Cajun grilled shrimp. I know you’ve been waiting for this dish for a long time!
HOW TO GRILL SHRIMP?
- Choose the type and size of shrimp before anything else. Both shelled, and deveined shrimp can be used in this recipe.
- The marinade of your choice. I relied on honey, Cajun flavor, and lemon for this recipe.
- Use your outdoor barbecue for cooking the shrimp. If the shrimp are large enough, you don’t need to thread the shrimp on bamboo skewers. A gas grill is all that is required to cook these steaks to your chosen doneness.
CAN I GRILL SHRIMP WITHOUT A GRILL?
You can use an indoor grill for cooking this meal for those who don’t own a grill.
A grill pan or skillet can also be used for sautéing. Oven baking and roasting are also options.
HOW LONG TO MARINATE THE SHRIMP?
A mere 5-10 minutes of marinating time is sufficient for shrimp, inherently saline, sweet, and tasty.
Marinating shrimp for hours in the refrigerator is unnecessary because the flavors of marinade and seasoning will only penetrate the shrimp’s skin.

- 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1 lb. shelled shrimp, deveined with tails on
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 dashes Cajun seasonings
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
DIPPING SAUCE (OPTIONAL):
- 1/2 tablespoon chopped parsley
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Pat the shrimp dry after rinsing. Melted butter, honey, lemon juice, Cajun seasonings, and salt should all be combined in a bowl before adding to the mixture. Make sure everything is thoroughly connected by vigorously stirring it. The optional Dipping Sauce can be made by combining all of the ingredients. Remove from consideration.
- The shrimp and honey mixture should be mixed thoroughly before serving. Using an outside grill, roast the meat on both sides until it is slightly browned, then shift it over to the top area of the grill to finish cooking. Set out on a serving tray with the Dipping Sauce and enjoy!
