Be honest. When was the last time you grilled shrimp? Or when was the last time you grilled shrimp in a war zone like parking lot? Probably never or not that often. So here is the plan for this week's What's Cookin' at GABA. Skewered Shrimp! I know. I know. I know. It's a football game and not a beach party. But still, this is easy and you can treat like a kick ass snack if you have a lot of folks over.
Real easy to do to.
You're going to need to buy relatively large shrimp. And, it doesn't matter if they have heads on or off, or shelled or not. It's up to you Sparky.
You'll want to marinate them in 1 cup of soy sauce, 3 cups of rice-wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and hot sesame oil. To make it even better, toss in some ginger and garlic too. Throw it all in ziploc bag, toss em' around like our DBs, and let them sit for about an hour like our running backs.
Hopefully you didn't forget to buy skewers at the grocery store. If you did, then you're skewed...ahem, okay, so you''ll want to soak those wooden skewers so that won't burn up on the grill.
Throw them directly on the fire for about 3 minutes or half beer later flip them over for another 3 minutes.
Plate those bad boys and serve them while hot.
We are going to have a football game this Saturday, so why not try something new like this really good Pilsner from Pontoon Brewing company. The No Pants Pilsner from Pontoon brewing pairs nicely with our grilled shrimp.
