If you are looking for a great tasting appetizer than this grilled shrimp with spicy mayo sauce is a must. It’s full of flavor, easy finger food and fast to make. It’s the perfect dish.

Step 1: Make the spicy mayo sauce

Getting the spicy mayo sauce done first will help you focus on cooking the shrimp and eating faster.

In a mixing bowl, add scoops of mayo, pickle juice, hot sauce, stone ground mustard, prepared horseradish, lime zest and juice and Dad’s Taco seasoning. Mix the ingredients together. Do a taste test to see if you need more heat. It’s always easier to add on than starting all over because it’s too spicy.

Looking for a lighter sauce but still to have a kick to it? Then you must try my tequila lime shrimp recipe which is usually a huge hit.

Dad’s Seasonings

Must have grillin seasonings!

Step 2: Season and grill the shrimp

For this recipe I went with fresh, deveined shrimp that I picked up at my local grocer. If you are purchasing frozen shrimp, make sure to defrost before seasoning.

De-shell the raw shrimp, drizzle with some olive oil and season with Dad’s Taco seasoning.  Make sure to get an even coating throughout and set aside.

Preheat the grill to high heat. I used my griddle and greased it up with bacon up to get a nice char on the shrimp.

Once the flattop is hot, drop the seasoned shrimp on the grill. Cook 2 minutes per side. Flip and make sure you get a nice crust on both sides.

Remove the grilled shrimp off the grill and drizzle with some of the spicy mayo sauce and enjoy!
