I had a ribeye steak marinating all day for dinner for Bill and I to split because I knew everyone was out for the evening and we had some shrimp sitting in the fridge waiting for something to be done with them so I looked for a recipe for the shrimp. I found this and and it was great, the only thing I would do different is we should have continued to baste the shrimp with the sauce throughout grilling but they were great!
Buttery Grilled Shrimp
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 pounds uncooked jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
- In a small bowl, combine the first five ingredients; set aside 1/4 cup. Thread shrimp onto eight metal or soaked wooden skewers.
- Grill shrimp, covered, over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn pink, basting occasionally with butter mixture. Remove from the grill; brush with reserved butter mixture. Yield: 8 servings.
Have a great night!
