How to make Shrimp Kabobs on the Griddle
This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.
Preheat your griddle over medium heat. Let it get nice and hot! It takes 10-15 minutes to fully preheat a gas griddle.
While the griddle is preheating, skewer your peeled shrimp, brush them with oil, and season both sides with the Old Bay seasoning.
Put the shrimp down on a lightly oiled griddle and let cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
These shrimp are great enjoyed right off the skewer, on top of a crisp salad, on a bed of creamy noodles, or wrapped into a tortilla.

What’s the best way to store and reheat leftovers?
Leftovers can be kept in any airtight container for 2-3 days max. Reheat gently in a pan with some butter. Avoid the microwave, if possible.
Are there any substitutions for the Garlic & Herb Old Bay?
Sure! Any seafood seasoning blend will work. I love the Garlic & Herb Old Bay though, so try it sometime, even if it isn’t this time! 😉
Can these be cooked on a grill instead of a griddle?
Yes! These can be cooked on any kind of grill, or even in the oven or on a grill pan on the stove. Shrimp are very forgiving as long as you don’t overcook them.
