Grilled Buffalo-Barbecue Shrimp with Blue Cheese Dip

This is one of my favorite easy, healthy (going light on the dip) recipes.  I just love the buffalo flavor on the shrimp!  A great dish to serve on Sunday watching the game or on a weeknight when you just don’t have a lot of time to throw together dinner!   This with a side of green beans and a salad… perfect quick healthy dinner (light on the dip) 🙂

You can thaw frozen shrimp in a colander with cold water running over.  It takes minutes.

For blue cheese dip:

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (2 ounces)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon milk

For shrimp:

  • 14 jumbo shrimp (1 1/2 to 2 pounds), peeled, and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce such as Frank’s RedHot

Make dip:
Stir together ingredients, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.


Make shrimp:
Heat grill to medium heat.

Toss shrimp with oil and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.  Stir together butter and hot sauce in a large bowl.

Grill shrimp, turning once, until just cooked through, 7 to 8 minutes total.

 Add shrimp and toss until coated.

Serve shrimp with dip.
