Grilled Spicy Shrimp Skillet

Back to Blog List Page

Fresh shrimp make a great base for any summer meal. We used chili oil to give these a good kick, with Worcestershire and garlic to make them very savory. Keeping the shells on for cooking does make eating a bit messy, but it protects the meat from the heat and keeps the shrimp juicy and succulent, so it’s worth the extra effort.



  • 24 shrimp, shells on
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. chili oil
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • Fresh parsley & lemon, for serving


  1. Place cast iron skillet on grill and pre-heat to high.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, chili oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Toss shrimp in their shells well in the mixture, to fully coat.
  4. Place shrimp into skillet on grill, grilling about 3 minutes per side or until pink inside and cooked through. Hint: you can also use a grill basket if preferred or grill large shrimp right on the grates.
  5. Carefully remove shrimp, arrange on a large platter and sprinkle with lemon and chopped parsley.
  6. Peel and savor!
