Whether you serve these accompanied with rice and salad as your main course, or simply serve them as an appetizer, there is no doubt about it – these shrimp skewers are delicious! Try pairing them with a steak for a surf ‘n turf dinner. Since these shrimp skewers are so easy to make, you do not have to save the recipe for a special occasion. If you want to make these but do not have skewers, just use a grilling basket instead,
Choose big, juicy shrimp for this recipe. They will be marinated in a delicious garlic, parsley, chili and Worcestershire sauce mixture, so you can imagine what a lovely flavor that will give your seafood. Only marinate them for half an hour; that is sufficient to flavor them.
This recipe is perfect if you have some shrimp and you are wondering what to do with them. If the weather is fine, get the grill fired up and you can make this for the whole family. Although this recipe is for two servings, you can double it or triple it easily enough. Try serving the grilled shrimp in tortillas with some sour cream, or over a bed of brown rice for a healthy dish.
- ¾ lb large, peeled, raw shrimp
- ½ cup canola oil
- 3 tablespoons chili sauce
- ¼ cup minced fresh parsley
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Add the oil, chili sauce, parsley, garlic, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to a Ziploc bag.
- Add the shrimp, and then seal the bag, squeezing out any air, and turn to coat the shrimp.
- Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then drain and discard the marinade.
- Preheat the grill to medium.
- Thread the shrimp on a couple of metal skewers (or wooden ones which have been soaked in water for ½ hour.)
- Grill, covered, for 4 or 5 minutes per side, or until the shrimp are pink, turning once.
In this photo the shrimp skewers are served with fresh lemon wedges, since lemon juice is delicious with shrimp. Try lime juice instead if you like it. You can also see a dipping sauce in the dish and you can serve any sauce you want. What about a creamy tartar sauce or some mayonnaise? A sweet, thick lemon dressing would also work, but most people would go for something creamy, since the shrimp are slightly spicy and creaminess gives a nice contrast. You can see how allowing the shrimp to char in places makes them look really yummy.
