  • 1 lb large shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh parsley chopped (for garnish)


Preparing the Marinade

  • In a bowl, combine olive oil, minced garlic, smoked paprika, ground cumin, onion powder, chili powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a flavorful marinade.

Marinating the Shrimp

  • Add the shrimp to the bowl and toss them in the marinade until fully coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to penetrate.

Grilling the Shrimp

  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Skewer the shrimp on metal or soaked wooden skewers. Grill the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they are pink and slightly charred.
  • For added flavor you can baste the shrimp with the marinade. This enhances their flavor and keeps them juicy.

Finishing Touches

  • Once the shrimp are grilled to perfection, squeeze fresh lemon juice over them and sprinkle with chopped parsley for an added burst of flavor.

Serving Suggestions

  • Skewer the shrimp, putting 4-6 shrimp per skewer.
  • Another option is to pair the grilled shrimp with a side of your favorite keto-friendly veggies or over a bed of cauliflower rice. They are also great in a salad or as an appetizer.
