How to Make Grilled Cajun Shrimp

Why Shell-On Shrimp?

Cooking shrimp with the shell-on, especially when grilling or making shrimp cocktail, adds an additional depth of flavor to the shrimp imparted by the shell. Leaving the shell on also shields the shrimp from the intense heat of the grill, protecting them from drying out or overcooking and keeping the shrimp nice and juicy.

This recipe is deliciously simple with just 5 ingredients: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cajun seasoning, fresh lime, fresh Italian Parsley, and of course the star of the show – Naked Raw EZ Peel Shrimp.
