Grilled Blackened Shrimp (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)

4 minute read
Tender and smoky, these easy grilled blackened shrimp are a summertime staple and are good on their own, over a salad, or as an easy appetizer! Stick with Paleo and Whole30 spice blends since most commercial blackened spice blends contain refined sugars. Pair these with an easy mango lime sauce and you have a match made in heaven!

Q: What if I don’t have time to soak the skewers, will they still be okay to use?
A: Yes they will be fine, but the skewers are more likely to burn when they are not soaked beforehand.
Q: Can I use a regular blackened seasoning I buy from my grocery’s bulk section?
A: Yes, but check the ingredients and make sure it is not full or refined salt or sugar.
