Grilled Shrimp


Today for dinner, thought I’d make it nice and simple. Nice Big Beautiful Shrimp smothered in spices and toasting on the Grill… 😉

For me, Shrimp doesn’t taste good unless it has some nice smoked paprika in it.

Grabbed this recipe from this months edition of Cooking Light.

Ingredients

  • 1  tablespoon  sugar
  • 1  tablespoon  paprika
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  garlic powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground red pepper
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground thyme
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground allspice
  • 2  tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1 1/2  pounds  peeled and deveined large shrimp
  • Cooking spray

 

Preparation

1. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

2. Combine first 7 ingredients. Combine oil and shrimp in a large bowl; toss well to coat. Sprinkle spice mixture over shrimp; toss to coat. Thread shrimp evenly onto 8 (8-inch) skewers. Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes or until done, turning once.

Fruit salsa: Combine 2 cups chopped fresh pineapple, 1/2 cup chopped cucumber, 1/2 cup vertically sliced red onion, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, and 2 teaspoons cider vinegar.
