Honey-Butter Grilled Shrimp


Description

Grilled seafood is in the league of it’s own. Shrimp cook so quickly, so it is important to start this dish when you are ready to eat. The longest part about this recipe is soaking the wooden skewers. Seriously. This sweet-and-savory dish is a home run.

These shrimp cook quickly on the grill and are served with a sweet honey butter, perfect for last-minute company.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 20 6-inch bamboo skewers
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped chives
  • 2 lb fresh medium-sized shrimp, peeled and de-veined

Instructions

  1. Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling to ensure they do not burn on the grill. Be sure they are completely submerged in the water.
  2. Heat up your grill to medium heat. While heating, combine your honey, butter, garlic, pepper, and chives in a bowl. Add your shrimp and toss to coat evenly in the sauce. Add salt to taste.
  3. Skewer 4 pieces of shrimp on each stick, spacing them out as evenly as you can. This is for more even cooking on the grill.
  4. Place shrimp skewer on the grill. Cook 5-7 minutes with the lid on, turning once. Serve immediately
  5. Once the shrimp are opaque and firm to the touch, they are done. Overcooked shrimp is the most common mistake, so err on the side of caution if cooking longer than 7 minutes.

BBQ Spare Ribs on the Grill
Melt off the Bone BBQ Ribs – BBQ Grill Method

Some recipes for BBQ ribs are so complicated. Many require a double-cook on the meat to ensure that the ribs are fall-off-the-bone tender. Boiling or baking the meat prior to adding it to the grill is common, yet it is a missed opportunity for flavor and texture. You are making BBQ ribs, and said ribs should be cooked completely on the grill, in our opinion. These legitimate BBQ Ribs on a Barbecue will be the juiciest, most tender wings you’ve ever had with a true BBQ flavor.

Grilled Chilli Chicken Wings
Grilled Chilli Chicken Wings

Buffalo wings are so passé, especially during the summer months. Breaded, fried wings are a little too much for a hot summer day. Lately, the grill is the way I go when making wings. Using diced green chilies from the pantry is one of my favorite ways to impart a spicy, south-of-the-border flavor to my dishes. My Grilled Green Chile Chicken Wings are spicy, flavorful, and taste like the grill. I spice up the chilies from a can with tons of lime juice, spices, and honey. Marinate your trimmed chicken wings in this delightful, saucy mix before grilling over a screaming-hot grill. When done, I top the wings with fresh cilantro and jalapeno for brightness and freshness. With such few ingredients, there is so much flavor going on!
