Grilled Shrimp

In keeping with the theme of summer time grilling, here is another great recipe sure to rock your world. You can fix these as an hors d’oeurve or as the main dish to your meal. Either way, it is going to be a big hit. I have a ton of recipes to share. Some are entirely my own creation, and some are recipes I have picked up over the years and really liked. Instead of letting them sit gathering dust on recipe cards, it is time to share with the masses.

  • 2 lbs Shrimp, raw, peeled and de-veined, leave the tails on
  • Large Zip Lock bag, gallon freezer bag is perfect
  • 1 Vidalia Onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup peanut oil
  • 2 TBSP Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 TBSP chopped garlic
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • Wood or metal skewers

Place the shrimp in your zip lock bag and then mix all the remaining ingredients in a bowl Pour over the shrimp and let marinate for at least a couple of hours. Reserve about 1/3 of your marinade to baste the shrimp with while cooking.

Start a fire on your grill with good hardwood charcoal and let heat until the coals are all gray. As your charcoal is heating, prepare your shrimp for cooking on the skewers.

Grill 5 to 7 minutes. Turn and baste frequently with your reserve marinade. Once done, serve with Cajun Butter to add to the pleasure sensation to your taste buds.

Cajun Butter

Combine these ingredients in a bowl

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp Basil
  • 1 tsp tarragon
  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2-3 dashes Tobassco Sauce. Or more if you please. If you get really adventurous, I like to use Habanero hot sauce on mine. However, that is ont always such a family friendly source of heat.

Enjoy my friends and thank you for visiting my blog and your loving support.
