Spicy Grilled Shrimp
We spent the long weekend celebrating the 4th of July and a friends wedding in Southern Orgeon. It was a weekend full of good eating and relaxing by a stream fed pool. For one of the meals we made shrimp kabobs seasoned with the Wet Wizard Pear Habanero sauce. They were so good. I was disappointed when I went back for seconds and there weren’t any left! I thought I had bought plenty of shrimp to feed 30 people - I literally bought all of the shrimp from the New Seasons seafood counter - but I was wrong. Lesson learned, it never hurts to have extra shrimp.
1 lb shrimp, peeled
1/4 c. olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsps+ Wet Wizard Pear Habanero
1 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
salt and pepper
Put shrimp in bowl with the olive oil, minced garlic, juice of half a lemon, and 1 tbsp Pear Habanero sauce (more if you like extra spice).
Let the shrimp marinate, stirring/tossing occasionally, for 1-2 hours.
Put shrimp on skewers if you plan to grill them
Season lightly with salt and pepper
Grill for 2-3 minutes per side, until pink
Once cooked, toss shrimp with juice of other lemon half, parsley and 1 tbsp more Pear Habanero sauce.
