Keep It FODMAP Friendly

These low FODMAP garlic shrimp will be a family tradition in no time. Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly.

First, because shrimp is a protein, they don’t have any FODMAPs. This means they won’t add to your FODMAP load.

We’ll add their deep garlic flavour using garlic infused oil. Remember, when choosing an infused oil, double-check the ingredients for “garlic extract.” You should also make sure you can’t see any garlic pieces or sediment floating in the bottle. If you can’t find low FODMAP garlic oil at your local grocery store, you can grab some from Fody Foods Co.

This recipe also uses butter. According to the Monash app, butter doesn’t have any FODMAPs (because it’s all fat). This means you won’t need to use a lactose-free product for this recipe.

The remaining ingredients (cilantro, parsley, thyme, and lemon) don’t contain any FODMAPs. So you’re good to go.

Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10 people
Calories: 167 kcal
Author: The FODMAP Formula
What You Need
  • 2 lbs shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup low FODMAP garlic-infused oil
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 heaping tbsp fresh thyme (chopped)
  • 1 heaping tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 heaping tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
  • olive oil for grill
  • 1/2 lemon (cut into wedges)
What You Do
  1. Place your shrimp in a large bowl and sprinkle them lightly with salt. Then add garlic-infused olive oil, butter, thyme, cilantro, and parsley. Stir the shrimp to coat it in the marinade, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it hang out in the fridge for at least 45 minutes. 

  2. Once your shrimp have finished marinating, turn your barbecue to full. While your grill is heating up, place your shrimp on some skewers. 

  3. Gently oil your grill and then place your skewers down. Cook the first side for 3 minutes. Then gently lift up each end of your skewers to loosen them and flip your shrimp over. Cook on the second side for 3-5 minutes. The shrimp should be pink and a little crunchy. 

  4. Once your shrimp are cooked, put the skewers on a plate and squeeze fresh lemon over them. You can either serve them on their skewers or pull them off and place them in a serving dish with some toothpicks. 


Make sure your butter isn't hot when you add it to the shrimp. You want to cook them on the BBQ, not in your marinade!
