Grilled Jumbo Shrimp with Crispy Garlic Chips

If you’re a shrimp lover, this one is for you! on top of that, the crispy garlic chips are an added bonus! The smokiness from the ancho just gives these jumbo shrimp so much flavor.  It’s such an easy recipe and it’s ready really quickly.


  • 24 jumbo shrimp
  • 1 whole head of garlic
  • 1 tbsp ancho Chile powder (sub Chile powder)
  • 1 tbsp Italian herbs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil plus 1/4 cup for frying
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • Cilantro leaves to garnish


-In a bowl combine 1/4 cup olive oil, ancho chile, Italian herbs, 3 garlic cloves minced, this will be to baste the shrimp before cooking them.

-Place the shrimp on skewers and slather with the marinade on both sides ( you want your shrimp peeled and deveined) sprinkle salt on both sides of the shrimp.

-Cook shrimp about 1.5 min per side ( you want high heat about 350 degrees on your grill)

-While they are resting add 1/4 cup olive oil to a small saucepan with your remaining garlic cloves ( thinly sliced garlic cloves) and fry until golden brown, keep stirring until they are done.

-Make sure to make plenty of shrimp as they go fast, you can serve them with grilled veggies or cilantro lime rice. Literally white rice with a squeeze of lime juice, a pinch of salt and your liking of cilantro. My kids love these!
