Shrimp on the Barbie. (with pics) (Posted on 7/6/13 at 4:35 pm)
My wife wanted to get peel and eat shrimp from Publix. I got the shrimp, by I'll be damned, I forgot to have the people at Publix steam them. I hate it when that happens.
Just a quick post for a quick meal. I don't often do shrimp because I have a son who is allergic to it. However, we had some leftover pizza that he had his eye on, so I made shrimp for the rest of us.
I prepared the shrimp two different ways, because my daughters don't like shrimp with any heat or other flavors. Normally, I give them whatever I'm making, but they do like shrimp and it was no problem to make them some plain, so I did.
The first thing I did was make some marinade out of butter, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic, cayenne, thyme, turmeric, salt, and pepper. There are many, many variations of this recipe. Almost all of them are good. I let the shrimp marinade in a plastic bag for 30 minutes.
I skewered up a few shrimp for my daughters. Just EVOO, sea salt, and cracked pepper.
I turned the burners on on half of the grill, leaving them off on the other half. I put the skewers on the indirect heat.
I put the marinated shrimp over the direct heat.
The end results:
They were pretty tasty.
