We had these at Bonefish Grill. They are a great app. Since then, I have been trying many recipes looking for one that tastes close. This is the best that I have found. Sometimes I fix these and just serve with a salad for lunch - very delicious!
Many Cajun shrimp dishes have loads of butter. This is a very tasty version that is much lower in fat. You won't miss it. Serve with French bread and a salad. Fabulous dinner on the table in less than 15 minutes.
This recipe from St. Croix Island was submitted to "Taste of Home" magazine by Teresa Methe who won 2nd place for it. This is excellent with fettucine, equaly good over rice and is even better the next day.
I have not had these shrimp at the Chili's restaurant, but have frequently made this recipe. We like to serve them as appetizers. However, they are equally as good tossed with some pasta (with or without alfredo sauce). The recipe came from Top Secret Recipes and has been a favorite at our house for quite some time.
We watched these being cooked right by our table while in Huatulco. The smell when the marinade was brushed on the jumbo shrimp while on the grill filled the air - so good! This is our version. Enjoy!
**Preparation time includes 30 minute marinading time
(****edit June 25/07 - it was suggested that lime juice would be good instead of lemon juice so I tried it out and I prefer it that way. Thank you for that!)
***NOTE : ) Aug. 7/10 - discovered an even better way to enjoy this recipe! Ran out of skewers so just threw the prawns with all the marinade into a foil pan and threw that on the bbq stirring and turning for about 5 to 7 minutes (depending on size of your prawns). They turned out wonderfully moist and tasty and the resulting sauce was fabulous to dip a crusty bread onto. The sauce is also very tasty ladled on top of linguine. So fast and easy. Cuts the prep time down to basically nothing.
I have made complicated marinades in the past but shrimp are so delicious they need nothing more than this treatment. Subtle flavors and the shrimp stay juicy. Alter as needed for the amount of shrimp you have.
Takes you to a quiet beach off the Mexico coast with the sun setting and the surf breaking...A favorite of ours when grilling in Mexico (or anywhere for that matter) - where the shrimp are so fresh and so cheap! Great with a cold beer in hand or a frothy, frozen concoction!
Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by Mrs. Alice (Podgie) Meyer. She didn't specify the number of servings this recipe makes. So, I am using guesswork. Chill time is not included in cooking time.
I found this recipe years ago on Epicurious and have served it as a side dish for Christmas dinner every year since. It is also great for cocktail parties. Even my shrimp hating SIL loves these!
**Don't let the long list of ingredients put you off. It really goes together quickly.
