Barbecued Garlic Shrimp with Basil Recipe

Serves/Makes: 5

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds large shrimp, peeled (tail-on shrimp)
  • 6-inch bamboo skewers, soaked in water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
How to cook Barbecued Garlic Shrimp with Basil:
  • Peel shrimp, leaving the tail on. Thread 4 shrimp onto each skewer set aside.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan.
  • Add garlic and red pepper.
  • Simmer for 1 minute and stir in basil.
  • Brush each skewer lightly with garlic butter, then season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Place on coals over medium heat and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side or until very pink.
  • Remove barbecued shrimp from grill and brush with remaining garlic butter.

Note:

To thread shrimps onto skewers, fold one end towards the inside, so that skewer penetrates each shrimp into 3 places, to prevent shrimps from moving around while turning skewers.

Tip:

Always soak bamboo skewers in cold water for 30 minutes, before using, to prevent them from burning on the grill.
