The BEST thing about cooking shrimp (and other crustaceans) is they tell YOU when they’re done. They’ll curl and turn an opaque pink/orange throughout, like Mother Nature’s own little temperature gauge, or God’s built-in egg timer.

The WORST thing about cooking shrimp, especially on a high-heat surface like your backyard grill, is that you’ve got to pay attention to get them just right, as they can char and overcook VERY easily.

With grill season upon us, TipNut has assembled a collection of tips and ideas to cook perfect shrimp on the grill, keeping them briny and sweet while maintaining the texture that makes them what they are.
