July is National Grilling Month so let’s fire up the grill and throw some shrimp on the Bar-B. Cookbook author and Coach-Net member, Jane Vogel, shares this easy-to-follow Chili Grilled Shrimp recipe. As a full-time RVer, Jane’s cooking philosophy is to keep things simple – either grill it or skillet! This recipe, like the others in her book, calls for simple ingredients combined with simple preparation and yields simply delicious fare.
- Large or jumbo shrimp, deveined but not peeled
- 2 T. olive oil
- 2 t. paprika
- Salt and pepper
- 1/3 c. minced parsley
- 3 T. lemon juice
- 1/2 stick butter, melted
- 2 T. bottled hot sauce
- 1 T. minced garlic or 3 T. if from a jar
- 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
- Lemon sauce
- Combine parsley, butter, lemon juice, hot sauce, garlic, and Worcestershire in one gallon, plastic storage bag and set aside. NOTE: You’ll be tossing the grilled shrimp in this mixture when taking it off the grill, so keep this at the ready when putting shrimp on the grill.
- Combine olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper and coat raw shrimp in a bowl, using clean fingers to toss.
- Assemble on skewers, leaving a little air space between each shrimp for even cooking.
- Grill, medium hot, 4 minutes per side.
- Slip off skewers into prepared and waiting bag of butter and spices and toss.
- Serve with lemon wedges and a paper towel for removing shells. Have a plate or bucket on the picnic table for tossing the shells.
