Easy and Delicious Shrimp Skewers Recipe Oven

You’re going to love these easy and delicious shrimp skewers recipe oven. They’re a great appetizer or light dinner!

Shrimp is one of the most versatile proteins around. It’s low in calories and fat, but high in protein!

These grilled shrimp kabobs are made with big or JUMBO shrimp (so they’re not rubbery), a quick marinade, and fresh veggies. Add a side of a salad, or serve with a simple rice pilaf for a complete meal.


Shrimp is one of the best proteins you can eat because it’s low in fat, high in protein, and full of vitamins and nutrients like selenium, vitamin b12, and antioxidants. When you grill them on skewers, they turn out crisp and tender and juicy, perfect for appetizers, salad toppings, or tucked into shrimp tacos.

In this recipe, I’ve infused the shrimp and potatoes with cajun flavors in the marinade. You can also add sausage or smoked kielbasa for a different flavor twist.

For the kebabs, you’ll need raw shrimp (12-15 count) and starchy potatoes such as baby reds or Yukon golds. You can either peel and cut these or leave them whole for added texture and flavor.

To start, boil the potatoes in salted water for about 12 minutes. While they’re boiling, prepare the garlic butter sauce. In a small bowl, mix together Old Bay seasoning, minced garlic, and melted butter; set aside.

Once the skewers are ready, thread a piece of shrimp onto each skewer. Make sure they’re completely coated in the garlic butter mixture.

You can add pepper flakes to the marinade for more heat, or omit them altogether for a milder dish. You can even substitute oyster, portabella, or shitake mushrooms for the shrimp.

After the kebabs are cooked, you can serve them with a side of creamy potato salad or coconut rice. This is a great way to make your classic potato side dish a little more interesting!

This recipe is best when served immediately, but it can be stored for a day in the fridge. It can be reheated in the microwave for about 10 seconds just before serving (be careful not to let the butter explode all over you!).

The lemon parsley butter is optional but it’s delicious. If you use it, melt a bit of butter in a small bowl and stir in some lemon juice and parsley. You can add more lemon juice if you prefer it more tart, or omit it entirely for a milder version of the recipe.

While you’re making this recipe, be sure to prep the savory shrimp and potatoes and the garlicky, tangy shrimp and corn sauce ahead of time so all you have to do is pop them in the oven when you’re ready! Then, you’ll have a quick and easy dinner for the whole family.

Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is a staple in many Asian countries, and it’s a great addition to any tropical or Thai dinner. It’s super easy to make and has a rich, natural flavor that compliments a variety of meals.

The key to making fluffy coconut rice is to steam it! Simply bring the ingredients to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15 minutes. After that, take the pot off the heat and let it steam for 10 minutes.

This is an important step that ensures the rice cooks evenly and that the moisture from the coconut milk is absorbed into the rice. It also allows the coconut rice to develop its fluffy texture, which is so worth the effort!

It is also a great way to use up extra coconut milk, which you may have in your pantry! A few tablespoons of the leftover liquid can be added to a soup or sauce for more flavor.

You can easily make this coconut rice in a rice cooker, as well! Just follow the instructions on the package for the amount of water and coconut milk to add.

A sweet and savory side dish made with rice cooked in aromatic coconut milk. The flavor is so rich and luscious, you will never want plain white rice again!

The ingredients are very simple to find, and you’ll want to keep a few on hand for a quick and easy meal. The recipe works with all kinds of rice, including jasmine and basmati. It also makes a great side to any Asian meal, including Honey Sriracha Tofu, Teriyaki Chicken, or Baked Ginger Salmon.

For a more traditional, Asian style of serving this rice, tuck a few pieces of fresh pandan leaf or kaffir lime leaves into each bowl of the coconut rice. These leaves will infuse the coconut rice with a delicious aroma that’s sure to remind you of an Asian restaurant.

You can serve the shrimp skewers with this coconut rice, but I recommend adding a few spritzes of Chimichurri to give it a bit of tanginess. This will make your shrimp skewers taste even more delicious!

Side Salads

Grilled shrimp are always a hit, but what you serve with them can make or break the experience. From grilled veggies to tropical flavors to healthy, low-fat and carb-free dishes, there are so many side dish options to choose from.

A simple Caesar salad dressed with croutons and a special dressing is one of the most popular salads to serve next to grilled shrimp. This salad is a classic, and it’s easy to make with fresh ingredients.

Another great salad to add to your shrimp dinner is a Greek-inspired vegetable salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and olives. This salad is super refreshing and it’s a good option for those who are watching their diets.

Zoodles are a healthy, low-carb substitute for pasta and they can be made with a variety of different flavors. They are also very versatile and you can use them in a variety of other recipes, from a side salad to an entree or even a main dish.

There is nothing quite like a fresh and bright citrus sauce to complement grilled shrimp. This simple Lemon-Dill Sauce makes an incredible side for any skewers recipe, and will make your meal taste even more special.

The sauce is so easy to make, and it only uses a few ingredients. It has the perfect blend of tangy, fresh flavors and a light mellow tone that perfectly compliments the roasted Greek shrimp.

For the sauce, you’ll need fresh lemon juice and zest, garlic, olive oil, Italian seasoning, smoked paprika and salt. You can also use bottled lemon juice and zest, but the fresh will have a much better flavor.

Once the ingredients are combined, marinate the shrimp for 20 minutes or so to give them plenty of time to soak up all of that delicious flavor! Thread about 4-6 of the shrimp onto each skewer and then grill or bake them for about 5-6 minutes until the shrimp are charred and opaque.

You can serve these skewers with your favorite rice or grain, or you can have them on the side for a refreshing, summer dinner. These sweet and zesty shrimp skewers are sure to be a hit with everyone!
