Grilled Shrimp Recipes, Texas Style

Cook's Notes: Grilled Shrimp recipes are a must for any chef. My wife just loves shrimp, garlic and butter and adds these ingredients to many of her recipe. The result is this Grilled Garlic Butter Shrimp Recipe. The recipe will enhance any meal, especially a good quality steak.


  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup orange juice
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Directions: Place shrimp in a large bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and pour onto shrimp. Toss to coat, cover, and place in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. Preheat grill for medium heat. Put shrimp onto skewers. Place skewer through tail and top (like a “C”). Place onto grill and cook for 2-3 minutes per side. When shrimp no longer looks translucent, remove from heat and serve.

Tip: Serve with melted butter to which you’ve added a little garlic and lemon juice. YUM!

Or combine with your favorite steak recipe!!!
