Grilled garlic butter colossal shrimp step by step
- Skewer cleaned and deveined shrimp. I use 2 skewers, not soaked in water since they cook so fast, per seven shrimp and skewer them in ladder form. Our lb came with 14 shrimp..
- Melt butter in a bowl and add fresh garlic and garlic powder..
- Lay them on a platter and season them with the old bay, salt, pepper on both sides. Baste with a little garlic butter and lay butter side down on med-high grill. Baste the other side before you flip. Cook til opaque, only a few minutes. Remove from heat when done and baste them again..
- These are so good on their own or in a grilled corn tortilla with slaw and green onions..
TIPS: Do not substitute with garlic powder OR dried parsley! Sea salt is stronger than table salt so use less than normal. Serve with steak or pasta with a white sauce. Start by melting butter in a small sauce pan and add garlic to it just long enough enough so it gets a little brown – maybe a minute or so. Place deveined and shelled shrimp on skewers and coat well with the butter garlic mix.
