Grilled Blackened Shrimp Recipe

I’m extremely excited about summer.

Grilling and outdoor entertainment are so much fun.

This is a great opportunity to get creative in the kitchen.

For me, summers are usually full of parties and gatherings with family and friends.

There is nothing better, than spending time with my favorite people, outdoors with good food.

This grilled blackened shrimp recipe that I’ll share with you today is just perfect for this time of the year.

Yes, but delicious food goes along with great drinks.

Everyone around me seems to love Corona Extra.

Even though I’m not a huge beer drinker, when I drink beer, I usually have Corona.

I just got some at the store, getting ready for a weekend party.

Corona Extra (both bottles and cans) also come in fun summer packaging.

The menu for our weekend party is great.

Very simple to make, all cooked on the grill. And it includes grilled blackened shrimp.

I love seafood and blackened shrimp is one of my favorite seafood meals.

It reminds me of our trips to the gulf of Mexico.

But since we are back home right now, I decided to recreate my favorite blackened shrimp and it turned out amazing!

Grilled Blackened Shrimp Recipe

Seasoned shrimp, juicy and flavorful, grilled to perfection and brushed with melted garlic butter, right off the grill.

There is nothing better than the taste if this blackened shrimp paired with Corona Extra.

What is important when cooking shrimp on the grill, it that :

  1. Using wooden skewers makes grilling shrimp easier.
  2. This way there is no chance of the shrimp falling between the grill grates.
  3. Seasoning is important.
  4. Feel free to use my blackened shrimp seasoning.
  5. Make sure not to overcook the shrimp.
  6. It really needs no more than 2 minutes per side (depending on the size).
  7. Brush shrimp with melted butter right off the grill.
  8. This will make it extra juicy and delicious.
  9. Last, but not least – serve shrimp with Corona Extra.
  10. It just makes the moment more enjoyable.

We definitely don’t enjoy Corona only when on vacation.

It is the perfect beer for summer entertaining.

Corona Extra is the beer that is your passport to carefree enjoyment because Corona Extra is the ultimate in emotional and physical refreshment.

Pair it with grilled blackened shrimp from this recipe and enjoy summer.
