Grilled Citrus – Marinated Shrimp

Servings 4


  • 1 teaspoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil plus more for coating grill pan
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound large shrimp shelled and deveined


  • To prepare marinade: In a small bowl, use a whisk to combine the honey, cilantro, ginger, lemon zest, orange juice and olive oil. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper; set aside.
  • To cook shrimp: Prepare a medium-high charcoal fire, preheat a gas grill to medium-high or heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the pan with a thin coating of oil using a silicone pastry brush.
  • Season the shrimp with salt and pepper, carefully place them on the grill, and sear on both sides. Turn once with tongs or a fish spatula, until no longer pink, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on size of shrimp. (You could also thread the shrimp onto large skewers and grill them on the skewers, sliding them off into a bowl once cooked)
  • Transfer the cooked shrimp to a medium bowl, toss with marinade. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • To serve: Transfer the cooked shrimp to warmed plates and serve immediately.
