Ingredients

Grilled Shrimp

  • 1 Lbs. Raw, Clean, Deveined Shrimp (if using frozen, thaw and pat dry)
  • 2 Tsp. Seafood Seasoning (we used Old Bay)
  • 1 Tblsp. Olive Oil
  • 4-5 Damp Bamboo Skewers

Key Lime Aioli

  • 1 1/2 Cups Mayonaise (we used Duke's Mayo)
  • 1/8 Cup Key Lime Juice (preferably fresh)
  • 1/2 Tsp. Chili Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp. Dill
  • 1/4 Tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 Tsp. Cumin
  • 1/4 Tsp. Paprika (we used Hungarian smoked paprika)
  • 1/8 Tsp. Ground Black Pepper

Instructions

Grilled Shrimp

  • First, if using frozen shrimp, thaw them out and pat them dry with paper towels.
  • Next, in a medium mixing bowl, toss the shrimp with the olive oil and seafood seasoning. 
  • Then, thread 4-5 shrimp on each bamboo skewer and place them on a preheated grill for 2-4 minutes in each side.
  • Last, remove them from the grilled and set them on a plate to rest while you make the aioli.

Key Lime Aioli

  • First, in a medium mixing bowl, combine all the key lime aoili ingredients.
  • Next, use a whisk or fork to mix everything together.
  • Last, serve the aoili with your grilled shrimp.

Notes

The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients and are NOT accurate because they include all of the aioli separated into 4-servings. However, this is not correct because a proper serving size of the sauce is only about 1-Tblsp. The aioli recipe makes approximate 2-cups, more than needed for this dish. On the positive side, the sauce will store in a sealed container, in your fridge for up to 3-days. So, we tend to use the left-over aioli for Mahi-Mahi, Salmon, and even grilled Chicken.
