Super easy to make and sure to please everyone, this butter smoked shrimp recipe is a crowd favorite. The best part, is that it’s quick to make and making it perfect when entertaining.

I like to use large shrimp for this recipe. Make sure you’re staring with RAW shrimp, that have been cleaned and deveined. I remove the shells but leave the tails on. It makes handling easier when cooked.

Line your shrimp in a foil pan in 3 rows. In a separate bowl mix 1 stick of melted butter, 1 tbsp of your favorite cajun seasoning, 3 cloves minced garlic and the juice from 1 lemon. Pour the mixture over the shrimp, making sure they are all nicely coated. Add 2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary to the pan.

Place the pan on your grill set for indirect cooking at 250 degrees. Depending on the grill that you’re using, you can add a piece of wood for some additional smoke. Cook the shrimp for 20-25 minutes, until they reach an internal temperature of 150 degrees. Remove the pan from the grill, top with more fresh lemon juice and enjoy! Like I said, quick and easy!
