How Do You Grill Shrimp Without Overcooking?

To grill shrimp without overcooking, it’s important to watch them closely. Start by preheating the grill to medium-high heat.

Then brushing the shrimp with olive oil, avocado oil or melted butter to prevent sticking. Place the shrimp on the grill grates and cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Cook until they turn pink or opaque and are just cooked through. 

Avoid overcooking by removing the shrimp from the grill. Avoid leaving them on the grill for too long as this will result in a rubbery texture. Enjoy your perfectly grilled shrimp.

Make sure to rinse frozen shrimp with cold water before grilling.
