ingredients

directions

  • Snip shells of shrimp with scissors down middle of back, leaving tail and first segment of shell intact.
  • Make an incision along length of back where shells are cut and devein, leaving shells in place.
  • (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.
  • While shrimp marinate, prepare grill for cooking.
  • If using a charcoal grill, open vents on bottom of grill, then light charcoal.
  • Charcoal fire is medium-hot when you can hold your hand 5 inches above rack for 3 to 4 seconds.
  • If using a gas grill, preheat burners on high, covered, 10 minutes, then reduce heat to moderately high.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Push shrimp off skewers into a bowl, then pour butter mixture over them and toss to combine well.
  • Cooks' note: Shrimp can be broiled on a broiler pan 6 inches from heat, turning over once, about 6 minutes total.
  • 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.
