How to Cook Shrimp on George Foreman Grill

Shrimp doesn’t take a lot of time to be cooked. But if you want to keep things simple you can just coat them with your favorite sauce, grill and be done.

When grilling shrimp, I usually like to season them with olive oil, lemon juice, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. This adds a very nice mouthwatering flavor to it.

Once I thread shrimp onto skewers I grill for 2-3 minutes per side. The trick is to cook it well but not overcook it. One way to know is to grill until they are opaque.

  4. So I assume that you leave the lid up whenever the shrimp are cooking? I understand that you flip the shrimp, but it’s also reasonable to assume that you can lift the lid and flip the shrimp.
