Grilled Shrimp Chinese Style Recipe

You can use any size shrimp for this recipe - I love using jumbo shrimp. Asians love to keep the shrimp shell on, it's a deliciously messy, eat-with-hands affair! If you prefer to shell the shrimp, that is fine too. You can broil or grill this shrimp.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Servings 4


  • 1 pounds shrimp
  • 1 stalk green onion, green part only, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, very finely minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced chile pepper (or to your taste)
  • 1 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • bamboo skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes


  • Preheat grill to high heat. In a large bowl, add all ingredients and mix thoroughly to coat the shrimp. At this point, you can refrigerate for up to overnight or just proceed to next step.
  • Skewer the shrimp - for jumbo shrimp, you may want to use two bamboo skewers for each (see photo or video). Grill 2-4 minutes each side (depends on how big the shrimp are). Serve immediately.
  • To broil, set the oven rack to 8" below heating unit. Broil 4 minutes per side or until cooked through.
