Tried out a new way of grilling shrimp. Used some Lawry’s Havana garlic and lime marinade with some shell-on butterflied colossal shrimp. It’s real simple and quick.
Click me to see the marinade!

Most of the time if you buy colossal shrimp, they are split and deveined, if not, butterfly and devein the shrimp. Wash the shrimp and place them in a large ziplock bag. Pour about 3/4th bottle of the garlic and lime marinade into the bag, shake and let marinate for at least 20 mins, but not for more than 4 hours.

Prepare grill for direct grilling and get the grates hot. Brush the grates with olive oil on a napkin (keeps the shrimp from sticking, but only do this after the grates are hot). (If you’re feeling funky, use half an onion dipped in olive oil and slide across the grates for a smooth oniony flavor)  Toss them boys face down (butterflied open) for about a minute on hot coal, let ’em sear, then flip and keep brushing them with the remaining marinade until they are slightly firm to the touch. Yeah I said touch, you gotta become one with the heat. lol.

So ummmm, yeah, I ate one of them before taking them inside. Had to make sure it was “OK”.  :o)
