Favorite Shrimp Recipe for the Egg?

After looking at the Yazu Kosho shrimp recipe earlier this week, I was think that it would be good to do some shrimp on the Egg.  I think the Yazu Kosho recipe may be a little bit too hot for my dad, so I was wondering what other recipies I should try out.  Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

    Green Lightning Shrimp is very good.  Don't be afraid of the heat.

    If you're buying shrimp, try to find the brown gulf shrimp.  They have lower water content, shrink less and taste better than white shrimp.

    I like to cook shrimp hot and fast.  Don't over cook - it takes surprisingly little heat to cook a shrimp.

    That said, I like to do a spicy oil marinade, skewer them and throw on the grid.  There are some good Indian spices and curries you can add to the oil.

    I think this is very good, and it's not hot.  You could omit the cayenne, but I don't think it adds much heat at all.

    Green Lightening Shrimp are delicious and you can dial down the heat by using less jalapeños, or using a sweet pepper instead.  I've eaten them as is and in a shrimp taco.  It's always a crowd pleaser.  

    Shrimp Burgers with Wasabi Aioli are another crowd pleaser.  

    VI -- that's a gorgeous meal!  Is that spinach soufflé?  Mmm...

  • Kristi, 

    Yes, that's spinach soufflé.  I've made it from scratch, but I can't beat Stoffer's.  I have been drooling over your Green Lightening Shrimp ever since you first posted it and, for some reason, have not had the opportunity to cook it.  That will change shortly.

    Good to know!  I'll have to try Stoffers!  I love a good spinach soufflé but I've never attempted one.

    The Green Lightening Shrimp are super in a taco with fresh mango and a cabbage slaw that has been soaking up a little fish sauce & coconut oil. And I know how much you love fish sauce! ;)

    LOL.  Yes I do, but not cabbage slaw.  Does that mean we're breaking up?   :((

    You can't get rid of me that easily.  Nice try, though.    :))

  • Dang, you'll know a lot more about shrimp than Forest Gump.  I don't think any of these were on his list.

    Only one I have tried here is Green Lightening, so bookmarked this thread for sure.  GL shrimp was excellent and not too spicy at my house.  The crab stuffed shrimp looks absolutely amazing.

    Packing up the small to head over to Death Valley for Clemson/FSU tailgating.  Go Tigers!!

  • I like these ;
    1lb. jumbo shrimp,Peeled and Deveined
    2 TBS Melted Butter
    2 TBS White Wine,Dry or Semi Dry (cooking wine works also)
    2 TBS Fresh Lemon Juice
    2 Garlic Cloves Minced
    1 tsp Salt
    1/2 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper

    Combine all ingredients & let stand at least 15 minutes. Grill until shrimp turn pink. (use skewers to keep shrimp from falling through your grate or a fine mesh screen.
