Now on to how to grill shrimp!
How To Make Grilled Shrimp Skewers
Step 1: Make the shrimp seasoning
First make the seasoning blend. Use measuring spoons to measure out the Diamond Crystal kosher salt, smoked paprika, garlic powder, ground cumin, and ground black pepper, then combine them in a small bowl. Set aside.
Step 2: Prep the shrimp
Get out a large bowl (or I like to use a glass casserole dish) and place the raw shrimp in it. Dry the shrimp off using paper towels (this helps the seasoning stick better), then throw the towels away.
Before you season the shrimp, measuring out the oil and place it in a small bowl – this way you won’t have to touch the oil bottle with dirty hands.
