Ingredients for Texas Roadhouse Grilled Shrimp
This copycat recipe has all the taste of Texas Roadhouse without the price! You can make a whole pound for the same price as two skewers! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Raw Shrimp – large, peeled, deveined & tail on
- Be sure to get RAW shrimp – it cooks in less than 5 minutes
- Peeled & Deveined Shrimp makes it easier on you!
- When the shrimp is the focus, I always use Jumbo or Large shrimp – but you can get other size shrimp if you like.
- If using frozen shrimp vs. fresh shrimp, remove shrimp from freezer 2 days prior to serving. Let thaw in refrigerator or open bag and fill with cool water. Shrimp should thaw in 15-20 min.
- Olive Oil
- Fresh Lemon Juice
- Lawry’s Seasoning Salt
- Italian Seasoning – or use a combination of basil, thyme and oregano
- Fresh Parsley
- Lemon Slices
- Lemon Pepper Garlic Butter Dipping Sauce
- Salted butter
- Minced garlic
- Fresh lemon juice
- Dried parsley
- Black pepper
Grilled Shrimp Skewers are simple and quick but you can tweak it to make it your own!
- Spicier – add chili powder and red pepper flakes to the marinade and dipping sauce
- Veggies – add cherry tomatoes and chunks of zucchini to the skewers – they’ll cook quickly like the shrimp
- Swap Seasonings – If you don’t have Lawry’s Seasoning salt, you can use a combination of salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika or even Old Bay seasoning which is always great on seafood.
- Steak Seasoning – take a real shortcut and use the Texas Roadhouse Steak Seasoning – it’s delicious on shrimp too!
How to Make Texas Roadhouse Shrimp Recipe
This copycat recipe is so easy to make! A little marinade and a few minutes on the grill! Here’s what you do:
- In a large mixing bowl or plastic zipper bag, add the olive oil, lemon juice, Seasoning salt and Italian seasoning. Mix to combine.
- Add the shrimp and make sure they’re all coated. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Don’t marinate longer or the lemon juice will start to “cook” the shrimp.
- Thread four shrimp onto a wooden or metal skewer and continue with the rest of the shrimp. Cook over medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes each side using tongs to flip the skewers. Shrimp will be opaque when it’s done.
- You can cook your shrimp in multiple ways:
- non-stick pan or grill pan – spray pan with non-stick cooking spray and heat on medium-high
- air fryer – 380º for 3 min on each side
- You can cook your shrimp in multiple ways:
- In microwave safe dish, melt butter. Remove from microwave and add garlic, lemon juice, parsley and pepper and stir.
- Remove from the heat and serve shrimp skewers over seasoned rice on a serving platter. Serve with melted butter and garnish with lemon wedges and chopped parsley.

Tips, Tricks & FAQs
Cooked shrimp is already cooked and is really just to be used for shrimp cocktail or cold dishes. Re-cooking it will make it very rubbery! Always look for RAW shrimp.
Sure! You can use a fork or paring knife to slice the peel and pop it off – leaving the tail on. Deveining is a little trickier and I recommend watching a Youtube video before doing it yourself.
Store leftover remaining shrimp in an airtight container (I like these glass storage ones) in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave for 90 seconds, in a skillet for 2-3 minutes or in the air fryer for 3-4 min.
