This is a recipe for Dijon and Honey Glazed Shrimp which is simple and quickly grilled. Ready in about 15 minutes, the sauce makes a beautiful glaze. An easy and flavorful recipe for grilled shrimp.
My two Webers are definitely front and center stage this weekend. I plan to grill, then I’m going to grill and then I think I’ll grill some more. Let’s take a look at this grilled shrimp recipe.
First out of the chutes is Dijon Honey Glazed Shrimp that’s grilled and glazed. I wanted to keep it light on Friday evening, as lunch that day was a big old heavy ham and Manchego sandwich. So serving up a side of my Pasta Salad and skewers of Glazed Honey Shrimp sounded PERfect.
I found a beautiful package of jumbo shrimp which were labeled “Wild Caught Gulf Shrimp“. I was surprised to see these available with this oil tragedy, but the seafood counter was just too busy to inquire about their origin. Perhaps from Texas?
Keep Grilled Shrimp Simple With Flavor
Simple please! I find that when grilling shrimp, size and simplicity matter. We love the delicate and sweet flavor of shrimp and when I find good quality shrimp, don’t like to overwhelm them with complicated sauces. This honey glazed shrimp easy falls into that category.
Here are some simple flavor ideas for grilled shrimp
- Sometimes just a slather of melted butter lightly flavored with garlic is nice.
- Or a quick baste with some olive oil in which some of fresh herbs have been added.
- We also like a light brush of Caesar salad dressing adding a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese at the end.
- Always love a squeeze of fresh lemon.
Obviously for grilling, the larger shrimp are more practical.
This is a quick and easy recipe, had it for years, it’s my go to “dinner in 10 minutes” entrée.
Sweet and tangy and I love the shiny finish that seals in the tender texture of the meat. Please keep in mind, this honey shrimp does not work well using an indoor grill pan. You need the flame and grates from an outdoor grill so the heat can surround the shrimp and the glaze can drip over and off it. A grill pan will allow the shrimp to cook in the liquid of the glaze, and keep it from searing and shining.

I am jealous. You own two Webers? I know life isn’t fair.
Thanks for sharing the shrimp recipe. I will give it a try.
I have a gas grill and a charcoal grill. Don’t be too jealous, I stole the charcoal grill at an Ace Hardware sale. A $350 grill for about $70.
