Easy Grilled Shrimp with Orange Marmalade & Gin
First things first, it's not a typo, it does say Orange Marmalade and Gin. Really.
This simple combination is what really makes this a unique and easy grilled shrimp recipe.
So what defines easy? How about 4 simple ingredients, shrimp, gin, marmalade and crushed red pepper flakes.
It's that easy.
Toss in some crushed red pepper flakes and this funny marinated grilled shrimp concoction has some pretty good zip to it.
So quit your search for those so-called easy grilled shrimp recipes and give this one a try.
And here's an added bonus, one shot of gin for the shrimp, and one for the cook! How's that for a fun grilled shrimp marinade?
Serves: 2 - 4
Prep time: 5 minutes
Direct Heat: 575F - 600F
Note: for best results let marinate at least 60 minutes.
The Gin thins out the thick orange marmalade so you'll get the perfect consistency for the final grilled recipe.
Thread 5 - 6 shrimp on the bamboo skewers and place them in a shallow glass dish.
Pour the marinade over the kebabs and rotate them several times to ensure they're evenly coated.
Cover with plastic warp and refrigerate at least an hour.
When the grill reaches this temperature place the kebabs on the grates and close the lid.
After 3 - 4 minutes, lift the lid and with your BBQ tongs wiggle the skewers to release them from the grates.
They should be turning opaque and browning up with nice grill marks on the bottom.
Flip them over and close the lid.
It's very important to remember not to overcook them or they'll get tough and dry out.
Remove them from the grill and they'll continue to cook slightly as they rest.
Enjoy! (I told you this was easy)
