Print Recipes > Smoked Seafood > Jim’s Smoked or Grilled Shrimp Recipe


½ cup olive oil
4 tbs Lea & Perrins marinade
5 cloves garlic chopped
2 tbs chopped fresh rosemary
2 tbs red pepper flakes
2 lbs Shrimp ( unpeeled or easy peeled split and devein)


  1. In a bowl, add olive oil and Lea & Perrins marinade, chopped garlic, chopped rosemary, and red pepper flakes. Put shrimp in zip storage bag and add mixture from bowl. Mix and refrigerate for 3-24 hours turning twice.
  2. Grilled: Remove shrimp from marinade and thread onto skewers. Grill shrimp over medium heat grill or hot coals 4 inches from heat for 2–3 minutes per side – do not overcook.
  3. Smoked: Pour shrimp with Marinade into a 9 x 13 pan and smoke at 225°F for 1–1½ hours or until internal temperature has reached 145°F. Turn halfway through smoking.
  4. NOTE: if smoking or grilling more than 2lbs of shrimp, double the recipe and use two pans. Cooking temperature and time will remain the same.
