Cooking time: 30 mins

Serves: 4-6

Gluten-Free, Keto-Friendly


3 lbs freshwater shrimp; shells on

1 lemon

1 lime

1 orange

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tsp coarse ground sea salt

1 tbsp cracked black pepper

½ tsp garlic salt

1 small bunch of chives, chopped


  1. Squeeze the juice of the lime, the orange, and half the lemon into a large bowl. Into that same bowl, mix in the olive oil, garlic salt, sea salt, black pepper, and half the chives.
  1. Leaving the shells on, stir the shrimp into the bowl and cover. Place in the refrigerator for no more than 30 minutes.
  1. Using the “cook” setting, preheat the grill to 450°F with the lid closed.
  1. Place the shrimp on the grill (where??) for about 3-4 minutes per side, being careful not to overcook, as they will continue to cook when you remove from heat. Remove from grill and let rest for at least 5 minutes. 
  1. Squeeze a little extra lemon juice over the shrimp and serve and garnish with chopped chives.
