    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    Special equipment

    • 7 wooden skewers (12-inch)



    1. 1
      Snip shells of shrimp with scissors down middle of back, leaving tail and first segment of shell intact.
    2. 2
      Make an incision along length of back where shells are cut and devein, leaving shells in place.
    3. 3
      (Shells will prevent shrimp from becoming tough on outside when grilled.) Toss shrimp with oil, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and marinate at cool room temperature 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      While shrimp marinate, prepare grill for cooking.
    5. 5
      If using a charcoal grill, open vents on bottom of grill, then light charcoal.
    6. 6
      Charcoal fire is medium-hot when you can hold your hand 5 inches above rack for 3 to 4 seconds.
    7. 7
      If using a gas grill, preheat burners on high, covered, 10 minutes, then reduce heat to moderately high.
    8. 8
      Heat butter, chili powder, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small heavy saucepan over moderately low heat, stirring, until butter is melted, then remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
    9. 9
      Thread 4 or 5 shrimp onto each skewer and grill, covered only if using a gas grill, turning over once, until just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes total.
    10. 10
      Push shrimp off skewers into a bowl, then pour butter mixture over them and toss to combine well.
    11. 11
      Cooks' note: Shrimp can be broiled on a broiler pan 6 inches from heat, turning over once, about 6 minutes total.
    12. 12
      Makes 4 main-course servings.

      Very easy to prepare. I found the chili powder a little overpowering and might use a cajun seasoning instead next time.

      How on EARTH did I manage not to review this yet? Nevermind that... this is the shrimp dish to end ALL shrimp dishes. I originally found this recipe on and haven't turned back since. My husband, who can't stand shrimp, won't stop eating these. If you're reading this and haven't tried it yet, RUN, don't walk, to your nearest grill and make the darned things! What are you waiting for??!!
