Summer Barbecue Shrimp Recipe

Summer Barbecue Recipe

Celebrating Summer

What I love most about the summer is the wonderful barbecue season! It is so easy to eat healthy and not miss out on the tasty barbecue goods. You guys asked me to make more savory recipes, therefore I would like to share two of my new go-to low carb barbecue recipes with you. 

I discovered shrimps to be the ultimate hit regarding the perfect summer barbecue. So, I experimented a bit with different shrimp variations, also pairing it up with pineapple in my second recipe. 

May this summer celebrate slow, delicious, lazy days and simplified living. Let’s read long books, stay up late drinking wine with friends and stroll our local farmers markets, slowing life down enough to taste its sweetness. Here is to backyard bungalow get-togethers, shrimp barbecues, long sunsets, beach picnics and getting back to nature!

Summer Barbecue Bowl 

This bowl is a delicious compilation of my favorite summer food. Tomatoes and cucumber straight from the garden. Crispy sweet potato fries, tasty avocado  and protein packed shrimp! 

This is what you need for this unique salad bowl: 

  • 100g of shrimp
  • 100g of tomato
  • 1 cucumber
  • 50g of greek yoghurt 
  • 200g of sweet potato 
  • clove of garlic
  • 1/2 avocado 
  • salt & pepper
  • balsamic and olive oil 
  • rosemary, thyme, marjoram
  • 2 wooden skewers 

Method: Cut the sweet potato in rectangular fries and place in a bowl. Marinate with olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme, marjoram and rosemary. Put aside. Place the shrimp into another bowl and marinate the same way. Put the garlic clove into a press and mix with the greek yoghurt and some salt. Put aside. Put the the shrimp onto wooden skewers and place them together with the sweet potatoes on the barbecue grill. Wait until the have the typical barbecue pattern and are done. In a bowl spiralize the cucumber and marinate with olive oil, balsamic, salt & pepper. Put into a nice bowl and decorate with cocktail tomatoes, half an avocado (sprinkled with sesame or chia seeds). Now place some of the sweet potato fries and greek yoghurt mix on it. Finally top with two shrimp skewers and serve while still warm.

Pineapple Barbecue Shrimp Skewers

Okay I admit this is a crazy creation I very spontaneously made up when I had leftover pineapple sitting in my fridge. Usually I am not the biggest fan of combining sweet and sour taste into one dish, but this one is actually pretty great and I was surprised myself! 


  • 200g pineapple 
  • 100g shrimp 
  • 100ml water
  • 1 tbsp of honey 
  • pinch of salt 
  • 1 lemon 
  • some rosemary 
  • wooden skewers


Cut the pineapple into nice rectangular pieces. Dissolve the honey with some water and at the juice of a lemon. Add a pinch of salt. Let the shrimp and pineapple soak in it for about 15 minutes. Take some wooden skewers and put alternating pineapple and shrimp on it.  Place skewers onto a barbecue grill until well done on both sides. Cut rosemary into small pieces and sprinkle over the skewers. Serve while still warm.

Cucumber Summer Salads

Cucumber Feta Salad

I absolutely love summer for being able to eat the most amazing and creative salad creations. It is just so refreshing and healthy! Lately I have been experimenting with cucumbers, as I feel like their neutral taste lets them mix perfectly with all kinds of different things. Thats why I came up with this delicious cucumber summer salad! 

In this blog post you will find two of my new and favorite cucumber salad creations. They are both so extremely easy and fast to make, look beautiful and taste delicious. 

Cucumber Summer Salad

I found feta cheese to harmonize perfectly with the subtle sweet cucumber taste. This creation is the perfect summer salad and the perfect addition to every lunch and dinner meal. All you need is a cucumber, some feta and tomatoes. I used a spiralizer to make cucumber pasta – works amazingly well! 

Make sure to let the cucumber noodles sit for 15 minutes because they will loose a lot of water. Drain the noodles and mix them with tomatoes and feta. 

Regarding the dressing I always used simple balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper. 

Cucumber Feta Salad

Cucumber Melon Salad

The second cucumber salad variation is very similar to the first one. The only difference this time is that I replaced the tomatoes with watermelon. I found this combination of sweet watermelon and tart feta cheese to taste extremely delicious. This is really the perfect summer salad with its tropical vibes and sweet taste.

Now with the barbecue season this is really the perfect side dish to impress your friends with! Definitely something different and I think they would love it. So make sure to give it a try!

Again all I did was mix 1 cucumber with 50g of Feta cheese and 100g of watermelon. Dressing was: white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.
