Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp Recipe

Grilled Teriyaki Shrimp Recipe

We took advantage of the nice weather this past weekend to grill more than once. We had this meal for dinner on Sunday night. By that point, it was definitely a little too chilly out to be grilling, but we braved the cold to get it done. It was our first time grilling shrimp and we think we overcooked them a little, but this was still a really delicious meal! The marinade really imparted a nice flavor to the shrimp without overwhelming them.

I’ve posted the original recipe below, but I made several adaptations to it. I didn’t use any bell peppers since I don’t really like them. Instead, I threaded some cherry tomatoes onto the skewers. I also threaded some shallots on the skewers as well for a little more variety. Finally, I just ate the skewers by themselves, without any rice, though I do think the shrimp and veggies would be amazing atop some rice. Perhaps next time…

from Weight Watchers Complete Cookbook, by Weight Watchers


  • 1 1/4 pounds large shrimp, peeled (tails left on) and deveined
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce/marinade (recipe below)
  • 1/2 medium fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 4 cups cooked white rice
  • 4 scallions, sliced on the diagonal
  • Teriyaki Sauce/Marinade
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger


In a small jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine all the ingredients. Cover and shake well.

Place the shrimp in a large zip-close plastic bag and pour in 1/4 cup of the marinade. Seal the bag, squeezing out the air; turn to coat the shrimp. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 2 hours.

Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray. If using wooden skewers, soak 8 (12-inch) skewers in cold water. Preheat the grill.

Drain and discard the marinade. Alternately thread the shrimp, pineapple and bell peppers on 8 wooden or metal skewers. Grill the kebabs 5 inches from the heat, turning frequently, until the shrimp are cooked through, 12-15 minutes. Serve over the rice, sprinkled with the remaining 2 tablespoons teriyaki marinade and the scallions.
