Wife wants shrimp

Recently somebody posted a picture of some shrimp done on their egg. I think it was in a wok...maybe not though. I sure would like to have a good recipe for it. It will be served as an hors d'oeuvres. TIA

    I have never cooked in a pan/wok, but shrimp are great grilled. I generally just wing it, but the recipe goes like this. [p]Mix crushed garlic, finely chopped serrano or jalapeno into EVOO and pore over shrimp on skewers. Substitute butter for EVOO. Add some lime juice when you flip the shrimp. [p]Also coat with EVOO and sprinkle with your favorite BBQ rub. I like DP Tsunami Spin and Jamacian Fire Walk

  • BobS,[p]That was it, I think. Sounds great. Just grill at a medium/high temp 'til done? [p]Thanks BobS.

    I would go for 375 - 400 and I figure about 2 minutes on the first side and judge time on the second side from there.

  • DynaGreaseball,

    A good garlic shrimp recipe can be had on Rick's Tropical Delight site.

    I've been told another good variation on this is replacing the parsley with cilantro.

    These are seriously good, they are grilled direct so you want some pretty big shrimp, maybe 15 ct. -RP

    Forgot the link. -RP

  • AZRP,[p]Thanks, both of you. This is exactly what I wanted.

    I copied that recipe a few days ago and have been wanting to try it! Sure sounds good.

    I did them in Denver and Minneapolis, they were well received. In Denver, people were standing next to me as I took them off the Egg, they were taking them as soon as I set them on the plate. Since they were so popular, I decided that I am doing them in Atlanta, and nothing else. Going to be expensive, but heck, they're good. -RP

  • DynaGreaseball,[p]I just had these up.... Marinated with lots of garlic, lemon juice, DP Dizzy Dust, olive oil, and rosemary. Into hot pan, few minutes a side (a little more lemon juice sprayed throughout) off. A little more DP and we eat them over pasta....[p]


  • Pace Yourself,[p]Oh Yea!
