Grilled Shrimp with Orange Aioli

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 HR 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 6

Three simple ingredients in this creamy aioli—orange, honey and garlic—evoke the flavors of Provence.

shrimp

  1. 2 pounds large shrimp, shelled and deveined
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  4. 2 garlic cloves, very finely chopped
  5. Freshly ground pepper

aioli

  1. 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  2. 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  3. 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  4. 2 teaspoons honey
  5. 1 garlic clove, very finely chopped
  6. Kosher salt
  1. In a medium bowl, toss the shrimp with the olive oil, orange juice, garlic and a generous pinch of pepper. Cover and refrigerate the shrimp for 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the orange juice, orange zest, honey and garlic; season with salt.
  3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Thread the shrimp onto 6 pairs of bamboo skewers and season with salt. Grill the shrimp over high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the shrimp skewers to plates and serve with the aioli.
Make Ahead The aioli can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Suggested Pairing

The orange accent in both the marinade and the aioli for these shrimp raises the opportunity for an unusually sympathetic wine pairing, since the Muscat grape often has a scent that's described as being like orange or tangerine blossoms. Most Muscats are sweet, but a few are dry (and very good, too). Look for a dry Muscat from Italy's Basilicata region.
