About the Recipe

This is one of our favorite recipes in the hot summer months when we don't want to use the oven. The sauce gets a nice caramelization to it when cooked on the barbecue. Our favorite way to enjoy the shrimp is on a bed of mixed lettuce leaves, avocado slices, red onion rings, and with a lime and olive oil drizzle. Delicious! These shrimp are also great served as a side to steaks or porkchops, and can be enjoyed chilled as leftovers.


  • 1 lb Large Shrimp

  • 1 Tbsp Prepared Horseradish

  • 4 Tbsp The Messy Stuff OR Dragon's Kiss


Step 1

If using bamboo or wooden skewers, prepare them ahead of time by soaking them in water for 2 hours before use. If using metal skewers, you can skip this step. 

Step 2

Preheat your barbecue to a medium-high heat. Skewer the shrimp and soak in lightly salted water for 15 minutes. While the shrimp are soaking, prepare the basting sauce by mixing together the horseradish and barbecue sauce of your choice. Use The Messy Stuff if you want a more mild sauce, or use Dragon's Kiss if you'd like it spicy.

Step 3

When your barbecue is hot, place the shrimp skewers on the barbecue. Using a heat safe basting brush, brush the horseradish mixture over the shrimp. Turn over and baste the other sides. Repeat this until the shrimp are completely cooked and glazed completely with the sauce. 

Step 4

Serve hot or chilled.
