Cayman Citrus Heat Shrimp

We've shown you this using shrimp, but fish or chicken would be great as well.


Using Cayman Citrus Heat Seasoning Pack OR

  • 2 oz Dryglaze Cayman Citrus Heat Seasoning -available at Cultivated Tree

  • 2-3 tbsp Cultivated Tree Persian Lime Infused Olive Oil - or Chipotle, Baklouti or Blood Orange Olive Oil

Using Cultivated Tree Homemade Citrus Seasoning

  • 1 tbsp sugar such as demerara or date palm sugar - don't recommend white sugar

  • 1/4 tspn salt + ground pepper


Cultivated Tree Homemade Citrus Seasoning

  1. In a medium mixing bowl add all spice ingredients and mix well.  Remember - if you are storing this for later use, use the dried organic orange peel - otherwise to use immediately, lime zest is great.  

Using Either Seasoning option

  1. In a zip-lock or resealable bag, drizzle 2-3 pounds of meat, seafood or veggies with Olive Oil & coat with Dryglaze seasoning packet, or Cultivated Tree Homemade Citrus Seasoning

  2. Close bag and toss to coat evenly.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes to develop the glaze.

  3. Grill on indirect heat source:  Shrimp, grill for 2-3 minutes until opaque.  Chicken, until internal temp is 145° then remove from heat and allow to rest for 3 to 5 minutes.  If roasting, cover with foil and roast as usual - remove foil halfway through for browning.

Recipe Notes
