I love seafood! Shrimp, fish, lobster, squid(!)…you name it, if its seafood….I’m there! Now if it’s grilled, even BETTER!!
Here’s what y’all need to make these scrumptious Grilled Shrimp:
1/2 C of apricot preserves
1 tsp canola oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, crushed
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled, deveined and uncooked.
And here’s how to make it:
Heat your grill to medium temperature.
Place the preserves in a small mixing bowl.
Whisk in the canola oil and soy sauce.
Fold the red pepper flakes into the mixture well.
Thread the shrimp onto metal skewers. Coat them lightly with cooking spray to make it easier to get them off the skewers.
Baste both sides of the shrimp well with the apricot mixture.
Place the shrimp on the grill and do not cover.
Grill 3 minutes, basting a couple of times.
Turn and continue grilling and basting for an additional 3 minutes or until the shrimps turn pink.
Makes about 6 servings
If grilling is just not possible, these shrimp can also be cooked under the broiler 4 inches from the heat source for about 3 minutes on each side. They will turn pink when done! Y’all can serve these over white rice. YUM!!
