Salt Free Shrimp Rub for Low Sodium Eaters

You'd never know this salt free shrimp rub recipe was low in sodium unless you made it yourself. Use it on grilled shrimp and find out for yourself. See if Mrs. Dash can fool ya!

One of my favorite ways to use this shrimp rub is with grilled shrimp kabobs, made with large, peeled shrimp. It's a super quick, great tasting recipe.

Once the shrimp is grilled, brush on some melted butter. A little butter makes any shrimp recipe better! Be sure to use saltless butter to keep the amount of sodium in your recipes as low as possible.

Salt Free Shrimp Rub Seasons Shrimp With Flavor

This rub can be used on whole shell on shrimp, or peeled and de-veined shrimp as well.


  • 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb Seasoning mix
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

Combine the Mrs. Dash, parsley, chili powder, black pepper and red pepper, mixing well. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry location.

Use on tablespoon of this no salt shrimp rub on each pound of peeled shrimp, and grill immediately. When seasoning shell on shrimp, use two tablespoons of the shrimp rub per pound, and allow an hour or so of time for the flavors to be absorbed before cooking.

To make seasoned butter for brushing onto shrimp, or for a shrimp dipping sauce, combine one tablespoon of the shrimp rub with one cup of melted, unsalted butter.
