I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Grilled Pesto Shrimp
...in your mind.

Grilled Pesto Shrimp

Serves 6 - 2 ingredients - OK, technically 3 if you count the stick. Larger shrimp like at least 3-1/40’s are great. That just means there are between 31 and 40 shrimp per pound.


  • 24 large shrimp, de-veined with shell & tail removed
  • 2 cups pre-made pesto, store bought is easier
  • 24 wooden skewers


  1. Thread 2 shrimp onto 2 skewers - the 2 sticks keep them from spinning around.
  2. Coat shrimp well with pesto and let sit about 15 minutes - reserve some pesto for serving.
  3. Heat grill or grill pan
  4. Cook a couple of minutes on each side and serve with extra pesto for dipping
