The next time you're wondering how to grill shrimp, you might want to try Mama's grilled shrimp recipe.
This recipe is so easy to prepare and as you can see from the picture, everyone's mouth will be watering! The garlic butter sauce is the icing on the cake!
Here's what you're going to need:
2 pounds of easy peel shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 tablespoons of Old Bay Seasoning
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
Garlic Butter Sauce
1/4 cup of butter (1/2 stick)
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of parsley
pepper to taste
Here's what you need to do:
Peel and devein shrimp. Place in bowl with olive oil and Old Bay Seasoning. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
Spray a non-stick grill pan (indoors or out) with cooking spray. Grill shrimp on medium high heat about 3-4 minutes on each side just until shrimp turns pink and crispy.
For the Garlic Butter
Combine the butter, garlic and pepper. Cook over medium low heat stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Add the parsley and cook another 5 minutes.
Serve hot with the shrimp.
If you don't have a grill pan, you might want to invest in one. I use an All-Clad LTD Nonstick Grande Grill Pan for grilling shrimp, chicken, salmon, steaks, burgers...well, you name it. Which reminds me of a little story...
Let me start by saying that I am a multi-tasker. As a matter of fact, I can't seem to do just one thing at a time. Sometimes that's a good thing but not always...
Shortly after getting my All-Clad LTD Nonstick Grande Grill Pan, I put it on the stove, preheated it, put some steak on there and began fixing the twice baked potatoes and the salad that we were going to have with the steak. A few minutes later, I turned back to check on the steak and I had flames shooting up around the grill pan. Well, there was a little switch that turns the light on inside the oven that was located right above the grill pan on the back of the stove. Notice I used the word WAS! Yeah well...that sucker melted!
Moral of the story is, when using a grill pan on a gas stove top, keep the heat turned down and your eyes on the grill pan!
