Spicy Grilled Shrimp
Description:I`ve made these at several fests now and am always asked, what did you put on these? Here it is. -RP
Ingredients:1 lb 15 ct shrimp, peeled to the last section leaving the tail for a handle, butterflied
2 Clove Garlic, minced
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp Paprika
˝ tsp Cayenne pepper
2 tsp Lemon juice
2 Tbs Olive oil

These shrimp are really killer. The recipe comes from a Mark Bittman cook book, and about the only thing you can do wrong with it is to over cook the shrimp, or try to use ones that are too small and they fall through the grid. I use the frozen U-15 ones from Sam`s club.

Take 1 tsp of kosher salt and 2 garlic cloves(minced) and mash them into a paste with the side of your knife or a mortar and pestal(easier).

Add to that paste 1 tsp paprika, ˝ tsp cayenne pepper, 2 tsp lemon juice, and 2 Tbs olive oil.

Thaw and peel the shrimp, all but the tail section, for a handle. Butterfly them by cutting down the back halfway through the shrimp. If they have a vein remove it now.

Mix the shrimp with the marinade until well coated, then grill direct. Go about 2 minutes on the first side at about 400 dome, when they start to curl up, flip them and watch until they curl fairly tight and remove immediately. Some of them won`t curl tight but you can pretty much tell when they are done, don`t overcook! Let them rest for a few minutes and enjoy. -RP

Excellent recipe. I just made this for my wife and me. We really enjoyed it. She's somewhat of a lightweight when it comes to the spicy stuff so instead of cayenne pepper I used a little bit of Mrs. Dash Chipotle seasoning in place of the cayenne. The shrimp turned out very good. Next time I may use only one clove of garlic because the garlic was the predominant flavor (they were big cloves).

I agree . . this is excellent. My wife and I were getting a little burned out and wanted something different . . this hit the spot. We served with some grilled peppers and angel hair pasta. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Fantastic. I could not stop eating them. My wife does not eat seafood and I ended up eating the whole 1lb bag.
