Bust out your grills for this recipe of quick grilled seasoned shrimp tossed in a homemade spicy and tangy Buffalo sauce. Perfect for summertime grilling and easy party food, dinner or appetizer.

Are you in NEED of a quick and easy dinner recipe? Or perhaps a LAST MINUTE appetizer that you can toss onto the grill super fast?

A recipe that will satisfy just about EVERYONE? Even the pickiest of eaters?

Here it is! Grilled Buffalo Shrimp.

YES!

These Buffalo Shrimp are grilled instead of breaded and fried like your typical Buffalo Shrimp, making them healthier to serve, but also MUCH FASTER to bring to the table.

That’s a HUGE bonus, right? Especially if you’re a slow cook like I am. I can’t help myself!

Let’s talk about how we make them, shall we?

How to Make Grilled Buffalo Shrimp – The Steps

First, peel and de-vein a pound of shrimp and dry them. Toss them in a bowl with red pepper flakes and salt and pepper.

Season the shrimp with chili flakes and seasonings

Heat your grill to medium heat and lightly oil the grates.

Grill the shrimp a few minutes per side, until they are cooked through and nice and pink.

Grilling the shrimp

While the shrimp are grilling, whisk together your preferred habanero hot sauce, melted butter, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar in a small bowl.

This is your Buffalo Sauce.

Mixing our Homemade Buffalo Sauce

Toss the cooked shrimp in your sauce to get them nicely coated.

Tossing the shrimp in homemade Buffalo sauce

Serve them up! Boom!

Super easy, right?

I served mine over some spinach leaves and topped them with crumbly white cheese and a few slices of lime.

AND! Some extra spicy chili flakes because, you know, I like to spice things up a little.

Recipe Tips

I used a Homemade Garlic-Habanero Hot Sauce Recipe for this particular sauce, but realistically, you can use your own favorite habanero hot sauce.

If you’d prefer to dial back the heat a bit, skip the habanero hot sauce and go with a red hot sauce of your own preference. A good Louisiana style hot sauce would be ideal for this recipe.

Or, try my other Homemade Buffalo Sauce Recipe and see how you like that, too.

It’s all good!
