  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced (about 3 medium cloves)
  • 2 teaspoons jerk seasoning
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1-2 teaspoons hot sauce (scotch bonnet pepper sauce is my fave)
  • 1-2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable chunks (optional)


  • Soaking the skewers for at least 20 minutes, totally submerged in water before using them, should prevent them from burning if grilling.
  • Heat the gas grill to medium-high heat. If using a grill pan, lightly spray or oil to prevent the shrimp from sticking to the pan.
  • In a medium bowl, combine thyme, garlic, jerk seasoning, olive oil, lemon juice, hot sauce, and soy sauce. Set aside.
  • Add shrimp to a large bowl, season with salt, then marinate the shrimp with the jerk mixture.
  • Use some marinade to rub on the vegetables, then salt to taste.
  • Thread the shrimp onto the skewers, alternating the shrimp with the vegetables. Make sure the front of the skewer is fully covered with vegetables or shrimp.
  • Place skewers on grill pan or gas grill.
  • Grill for 2-3 minutes per side until vegetables are fully cooked. Serve warm with salad, rice, or creamy orzo.
