Grilled Ginger Lime Shrimp Skewers

Grilled Ginger Lime Shrimp Skewers are a light and healthy recipe, but they really bring on big flavor.

The combo of the ginger and lime is like a match made in heaven.

These are great to enjoy with the extra dipping sauce, which is also the shrimp marinade.

Or you could top a salad with the shrimp.

How to Make Grilled Ginger Lime Shrimp Skewers

For the sauce and marinade you’ll need olive oil, honey, dijon mustard, and of course…ginger and lime.

ingredients for the sauce

Put 1/4 cup each olive oil and freshly squeezed lime juice in a jar along with a tablespoon each of the honey and mustard.

Season with kosher salt and pepper as well.

I grated a tablespoon of fresh ginger with my microplane grater.

Or you can get ginger paste in the produce section of most grocery store right by the fresh herbs.

making the sauce for shrimp

Put the lid on the jar and shake, shake, shake until it’s evenly combined.

And now to season the shrimp, start with two pounds of jumbo shrimp that has been peeled and deveined.

Pat the shrimp dry to help the marinade and seasoning stick.

And toss until the shrimp are coated.

Put the shrimp onto kabob skewers and on a tray.

You should get 6 to 8 skewers total.

making the skewers before the grill

In the bowl that the shrimp were in, there should be some extra marinade.

Use a brush to get all that yumminess on the shrimp.

brushing extra sauce from the bowl

Preheat the grill to medium high.

And once hot, grill the shrimp about 5 minutes total, flipping halfway through.

If you have any marinade still left in the bowl, brush the rest on the shrimp at the halfway point.

Serve Grilled Ginger Lime Shrimp Skewers with the ginger lime sauce for dipping 🙂

Warning…these are slightly addicting, especially with that refreshing and bright ginger lime sauce.

I just may have to try out grilled chicken with this same sauce it’s so good!
