Although it can be hot and sticky during the summer, it's still one of my favorite seasons. When it gets too hot we retreat to the air conditioning, but for the most part my family and I love partaking in activities outside. Playing at our local park, swimming, picnics, etc. are some of our favorite things to do when the weather permits. Another big one is grilling out.  We recently had friends over and my husband came up with this grilled garlic shrimp recipe. Needless to say, it was a HUGE hit. The flavor of the shrimp plays wonderfully with the tangy roasted pepper aioli. We hope that you love our Grilled Garlic Shrimp Recipe with Roasted Pepper Aioli. Grilled Garlic Lime Shrimp with Roasted Pepper Aioli Recipe

cooking shrimp with garlic and lime roasted pepperRoasted Pepper Aioli RecipeGrilled Garlic ShrimpDirections

  1. Toss the shrimp with all of the ingredients in the shrimp section (salt and pepper to taste) and set aside.
  2. Prepare a grill with a medium heat.  Skewer the shrimp (5 shrimp per skewer) and grill until done.
  3. Place the bell pepper and garlic in a food processor and puree.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients (salt and pepper to taste) and process until everything pulls together and is well mixed.
  5. Plate your food and enjoy!

Note: You can roast the pepper on the grill prior to cooking the shrimp. Just cook it over a medium heat, turning periodically, until all of the skin is blistered and blackened. Then place the pepper in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let it steam for about 15 minutes. At this point, you should be able to easily remove the skin and seeds. Don't rinse under water (you will rinse away flavor)…it's ok if the pepper is a bit “rustic” looking.

  1. I haven’t seen blue plate mayo around here, I will keep an eye out for it during my next shopping trip. Get that garlic lime shrimp in me belly! 🙂

  2. I had no idea there was mayo made from Greek yogurt. I would definitely love to add some extra protein to our diet.

  3. Oh those flavors sound amazing. I think my guys would love some grilled shrimp like this.

  4. I have not heard of this mayo before, but I am so intrigued! I love Greek yogurt, so I bet this would be a huge hit with me. And the shrimp sounds ah-mazing! I can’t wait to try it out on the grill this summer!

  13. This Greek Yogurt alternative is the healthier option for those who might be watching their figure this summer. Although it’s a healthier option, it’s still just as rich in flavor; Blue Plate certainly didn’t skimp on good flavor when switching to their healthier option……

  14. Hi Stacie ,

    There’s no better way to beat the heat than to enjoy a glass of cold lemonade and indulge in a cold cut sandwich. Sometimes we even make them for dinner too because it’s too hot to fire up the stove/oven.
    my favorite seasons. When it gets too hot we can retreat indoors to where the air conditioner is but for the most part my family and I love partaking in the activities that summer is best known for. Playing at our local park, swimming, picnics, etc. are some of our favorite things to do when the weather permits it. I think my guys would love some grilled shrimp like this.
