New Caledonian Blue Shrimp Barbecue Recipe

New Caledonian Blue Shrimp Barbecue Recipe

This New Caledonian Blue Shrimp Barbecue recipe draws inspiration from the renowned Chef Francis Mallmann's distinctive approach to cooking, particularly his emphasis on elemental, outdoor grilling techniques.

Chef Mallmann is celebrated for his rustic charm and mastery of open-fire cooking, which infuses dishes with a unique smoky flavor and an authentic connection to nature.

In crafting this recipe, we pay homage to Chef Mallmann's ethos by incorporating simple yet bold flavors and by grilling our succulent New Caledonian Blue Shrimp over an open flame. The marinade, featuring smoked paprika, garlic, and cayenne pepper, adds depth and complexity to the dish, while the finishing touch of fresh parsley and lemon juice enhances its vibrant, summery appeal.


  • 1 lb New Caledonian Blue Shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, aiming for a temperature of around 375°F to 400°F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, chopped parsley, salt, and black pepper to create a flavorful marinade.
  3. Thread the New Caledonian Blue Shrimp onto skewers, then brush them generously with the marinade on both sides.
  4. Place the shrimp skewers on the preheated grill and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until they turn pink and slightly charred.
  5. Once cooked through, remove the shrimp skewers from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter.
  6. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the grilled shrimp and garnish with additional chopped parsley, if desired.
  7. Serve the BBQ shrimp hot off the grill alongside your favorite sides and enjoy its smoky, savory flavors.

By embracing Chef Francis Mallmann's philosophy of cooking with fire and honoring the essence of outdoor adventure, this mouthwatering New Caledonian Blue Shrimp Barbecue recipe invites you to experience the soulful joy of elemental cuisine right in your own backyard!
