How to Make Shrimp Diablo Skewers


  • 1While thawing shrimp, combine all items above except the shrimp whisk together and pour into a 1 gallon zip lock bag. (I like to make this the day before and let it hang out in the fridge for 24 hours before marinating the shrimp)
  • 2Once shrimp is thawed, rinse with cold water and let drain for a couple of minutes.
  • 3Pierce each shrimp a couple of times with a fork and add to the zip lock bag and then mix the 2 pounds well with the marinade after which let marinate in the fridge for 1 to 1.5 hours while laying flat turning and mixing once or twice.
  • 4Soak wooden skewers in warm water for at least 30 minutes before grilling time.
    (Last 1/2 hour of the marinating time of the shrimp)
  • 5Place a sheet of aluminum foil on the grill grate and grease with vegetable oil.
  • 6Skewer all the shrimp and pour the rest of the marinade on the greased aluminum foil on the grill to form a base layer (like when doing lasagna) and heat up the grill using medium heat.
  • 7Lay skewers on the aluminum foil on the grill (may be done in batches) over medium heat a couple of minutes on each side and remove when pink. (Do not overcook!)
  • 8Remove from grill, de-skewer and enjoy!
