How to make it

  • The tedious part is prepping the shrimp.
  • Use your kitchen shears to snip the back of the shrimp, clean out the digestive tract, but leave the tail and first segment of the shell intact.
  • Leave your shells on, it will keep the shrimp from burning on the grill.
  • Put the shrimp with oil, garlic, 1/2 tsp of salt and marinate for 15 minutes.
  • While they marinate, prep the grill to medium high heat.
  • Heat butter, chili powder, pepper and worchestershire sauce and remaining salt in small sauce pan until warmed through. Add lemon juice and zest.
  • Thread shrimp on double wooden skewers (that you have soaked in water for 30 minutes)
  • Grill about four minutes per side, five max.
  • Push shrimp into a large pasta bowl, pour warmed lemon butter over the top.
  • Serve.
  • Don't forget bread to soak up the extra sauce, finger lickin' is okay too.
