Lime Grilled Shrimp with Creamy Dipping Sauce

A super simple fresh grilled shrimp using lime butter with a creamy tart dipping sauce.



  • 2 12 ounce bags frozen peeled and deveined shrimp-colossal size You can use fresh as well - I used about 32-44 shrimp
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 lime - juice and zest Use for both shrimp and dipping sauce

Creamy Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • some lime juice and zest from the lime used for the shrimp
  • ¼-½ teaspoon Tajin Seasoning



  • I thaw my frozen shrimp by running them under cool water and patting them dry on paper towels, then threaded them onto skewers.
  • Melt the butter and add the zest and juice of a quarter of a lime into the melted butter
  • Place shrimp on medium-high hot grill and brush with the lime butter, shrimp cook very quickly so don't walk away. Cook for 2-3 minutes on one side, flip over and brush with the lime butter and cook 2-3 more minutes - shrimp is cooked when pink and opaque.

Creamy Dipping Sauce

  • Combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, lime juice, lime zest, and Tijon Seasoning


You can totally use fresh shrimp for this I just use frozen because it's what is readily available and I can keep it on hand.
