These are great as a main dish or as an appetizer if you have company. I was feeling fancy, so I made them with dungeness crab cakes and veggies. These shrimp are super simple to make. I whipped them up with just a few key ingredients. It’s BBQ season, so get grilling!
About 1 lb of cleaned, deveined and shelled shrimp
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
½ a lemon juiced
Splash of soy sauce
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper or red chili pepper flakes
4 – 5 skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
Combine all ingredients into a medium bowl. Mix it up, coating all the shrimp. Cover with plastic wrap and let it marinate in the fridge for at least one hour. When you’re ready to cook, thread about 5 shrimp on each skewer. Make sure your grill is hot, clean and prepared for your shrimp. These cook fast…only about 3 minutes a side. They’re ready when they turn rosy pink. Serve with rice and your favorite vegetable or a side salad.
