It’s kind of hard to put into words just how amazingly delicious these Cajun Lime Shrimp Kabobs are.

Cajun shrimp kabobs are good by themselves, but adding the lime brings a nice brightness to this simple dish.

Plus I even made a cajun lime aioli for dipping that really made this dish sing 🙂

How to make Cajun Lime Shrimp Kabobs

This is one pound of jumbo shrimp that I bought already peeled and deveined.

Sometimes taking a little help from the store saves my sanity.

I put them on wooden skewers that soaked overnight in water.

The water prevents the skewers from catching on fire, but they usually still get burnt.

No worries 🙂

Brush the shrimp with olive oil and lime juice, then sprinkle both sides with cajun seasoning.

I am using the Cajun blend from Savory Spice Shop.

Savory Spice has a great selection of high quality spice blends, unique sauces, and lots of gift set options!

Shrimp cooks quick, so hang out by the grill maybe with a drink in hand?

Grill them over medium to medium high heat for two and a half to three minutes per side.

Use tongs to easily flip them without getting burnt.

Remove them from the grill onto a tray and let them cool slightly before serving.

Honestly these cajun shrimp kabobs were absolute perfection on their own, but you know I love me some sauce with just about everything 😉

I mixed together some mayo, garlic paste, cajun seasoning, lime, and Tabasco sauce for dipping.

These would be an amazing meal with some rice or cauliflower rice (mmmm, especially with that cajun lime aioli mixed in) or served with a salad or veggies on the side.

They could also be an easy party appetizer.

We had some shrimp left so I put the leftovers on a salad the next day for lunch and they were even amazing cold!
