How to make it

  • In one bowl, placed thawed cleaned with shells still on shrimp and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add one shake of red chili flakes and add good amount of salt and pepper.
  • Stir contents of bowl and set aside.
  • Turn on grill and let preheat for 5 minutes at least - you want that baby super hot!
  • Take shrimp and carefully place on your grill. You will want to cook the shrimp almost completely through on one side, allowing for the shell to have grill marks on them.
  • Total cooking time may only take about 6-8 minutes depending upon size of shrimp and hotness of your grill.
  • In other bowl, place butter, remaining olive oil and all the garlic and last shake of red chili peppers - add optional ingredients if you would like.
  • Take a peek at one shrimp, has shell turned dark and crisp looking? Then turn those babies over using tongs or long fork, being careful not to burn yourself.
  • Check on one shrimp - see if done throughout, if so, take all shrimp off of grill and place into bowl that has butter, olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice along with optional ingredients.
  • Stir till butter is melted and serve immediately with extra napkins and separate little bowl for people to discard shells into.
  • See the smiles on people's faces as they devour your grilled shrimp! You will wish you made more!
  • Enjoy!

    Yes, Yes, Yes. This is SUPER good. We can get some really big shrimps around here (under 6 per pound!) and man do they grill up good. I'll be doing this soon. Thanks for posting!

    I had always cooked my shrimp without their shells - who knew they could be any better if cooked in their shells - I was so hooked really hooked - I now make these about once a month - and yes the recipe is very similar to many I see here, only twist is adding the garlic (which hasn't been cooked) at the end and fresh lemon juice too...
    regards to all!

    I do almost the same thing, well i usually skewer them. BUT, the toss at the end, mm mm mm.. this looks mighty tasty. I can't wait to fire up the grill and try this. The broiler or grill pan probably works almost as well, but i agree with you that shrimp on the barbie in the shell.. MIGHTY GOOD EATS :)
