Can I Make Garlic Butter Shrimp indoors?
Yes, we look cooking shrimp indoors. This is great when you do not have a Blackstone. Place the shrimp in a skillet over medium high heat. You can use a griddle or we recommend cooking the shrimp in a cast iron skillet.
What is the Best Shrimp to Use?
The perfect shrimp to grill is the large, jumbo or colossal size fresh shrimp. We recommend buying shrimp that is already peeled and deveined. But you can grill shrimp with the peel on. I like to keep things easy, so I look for the shrimp that is already peeled.
When cooking shrimp on the Blackstone, always buy raw shrimp. Already cooked shrimp will shrink in size when heated for to long.
If you use frozen shrimp, make sure to allow the shrimp to thaw before placing on the Blackstone Stone.

- Lemon – When seasoning the shrimp with the lemon, we recommend using fresh squeeze lemon for the best flavor.
- Blackstone – Prepare the Blackstone by preheating and melting the butter before adding the shrimp.
Garlic Butter Shrimp Recipe Variations:
- Shrimp Skewers – If you prefer you can make this recipe on the gas grill. Make sure to oil the gill grates then place the shrimp on skewers.
