Friday night we were looking for something quick and easy. Mrs. G suggested shrimp and it was on! Love shrimp on the Egg. Served up with some asparagus and some rice and we were good to go. You can check out the details and see more pictures here:

    Love shrimp on the grill, those look great.
    I like your asparagus technique and can't wait to try the "rice trick".  White rice is so boring.

    Thanks for looking. Although I had heard of the rice trick, that was all my wife's doing and it really helps turn boring rice into a very nice side dish. I went back for seconds.

    The shrimp looks great. We have shrimp alot, here's what we do. Marinate the 21-25 count size peeled and deveined, tails on shrimp from Costco, in 1/4 cup EVOO, along with 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. granulated garlic, 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper. Mix this all together, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Skewer on pre soaked skewers and cook at 325-350 for approximately 2 minutes a side, until opaque in color. Nice little kick from the peppers.

    Be careful, if you try it, it'll become a keeper. The only problem we had is when we share it with others, then every time we get invited to a potluck they want us to bring the shrimp!

    Here's what I was warning you about. We got invited to a party of 30 people yesterday, when I asked what we could bring the answer was shrimp. I took over 100 bbqed shrimp and they were gone in about 20 minutes. This is getting expensive!

    Depends on how well you like them cooked and how thick they are. I'd say start with about 5 minutes and adjust from there.

  • Awesome asparagus technique. I'll have to try it. It beats my tin foil boat with EVOO and garlic method.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    We've been doing asparagus in a paper bag in the oven for years. I'm going to try it on my Egg this weekend. In a baking dish put the asparagus and coat with EVOO. Toss with kosher salt and pepper to taste and then put them in a grocery store size paper bag, add 2 slices of lemon and a bay leaf. Rub the complete outside of the bag with cooking oil, so it won't burn and fold the bag. Put the bag on a sheet pan and cook at 350 for about 20 minutes, delicious!
