    wood planking works nicely with shrimp.  i've also skewered, but plank is easier prep.  marinading in coconut milk + onion/garlic/peppers works well.
    That I will have to try, probably with a bit of rum mixed in though.

  • What did not work.
    I tried to recreate smoked shrimp from my wife's memories of the delicacy sold in road side stands along Alligator Alley and in the 60's. Headed, peeled and put on skewer. Low and slow for a long time, but they were either raw or mushy. The shrimp were caught Sunday and I got them on Tuesday, but they had been in a cooler with ice. Heads came off easily and this may be the problem. Boiled shrimp from the same batch and they seemed OK.
    These were medium. I have grilled 16-22's on a skewer over a hot fire with good results.

    I did these the other night with grits. I skipped tossing them in oil this time and just sprinkled a little potlatch seasoning on them right before they went on.  They were fantastic.

  • Large Gulf Shrimp.  Deveined. Seasoning of your choice. Grilled on a cedar plank at 400* on a raised grid for about three three minutes a side. Great flavor and extreamely easy.  Be sure to soak your planks.
