Grilled Shrimp

My two Webers are definitely front and center stage this weekend. I plan to grill, then I’m going to grill and then I think I’ll grill some more. Let’s take a look at this grilled shrimp recipe.

First out of the chutes is Glazed Grilled Shrimp. I wanted to keep it light on Friday evening, as  lunch that day was a big old heavy ham and pumpernickel sandwich. So serving up a side of my leftover Pasta Salad and skewers of Glazed Shrimp sounded PERfect.

I found a beautiful package of jumbo shrimp which were labeled “Gulf Shrimp”. I was surprised to see these available with this oil tragedy, but the seafood counter was just too busy to inquire about their origin. Perhaps from Texas?

Simple please! I find that when grilling shrimp, size and simplicity matter.  We love the delicate and sweet flavor of shrimp and don’t like to overwhelm them with complicated sauces. Sometimes just a slather of melted butter lightly flavored with garlic is nice. Or a quick baste with some olive oil in which some of fresh herbs have been added.  We also like a light brush of Caesar salad dressing adding a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese at the end. Always love a squeeze of fresh lemon. Obviously the larger shrimp are more practical. The recipe below is about as complicated as I get.

This is a quick and easy recipe, had it for years, it’s my go to “dinner in 10 minutes” entrée. Sweet and tangy and I love the shiny finish that seals in the tender texture of the meat.

Shrimp Glaze

3 Tbs Dijon mustard
2 Tbs honey
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 garlic — minced
1 1/2 pound shrimp, cleaned and de-veined

1. Skewered, brush one side of shrimp with mixture, grill two minutes. Turn and brush, cook 2 more min.

I mean really, can anything be simpler and did I mention tasty?

    I want to come grill at your house! The shrimp looks amazing with the pasta salad. I checked out that recipe too. Simple and how can you go wrong with bacon. :)

    Nice. Grilling shrimp should be a national pastime.

    I like to go with a small amount of teriyaki glaze and a squeeze of lime.

    Oh man, that shrimp glaze sounds PERFECT! I’m saving this in my database to use the next time I have some shrimp on the BB. Beautiful pictures!
