Once you learn the trick, you will be amazed how affordable and easy to make this awesome and easy grill recipe.
My family L.O.V.E. shrimps. 3 pounds are actually not that much. It just perfectly fits everything on the grill. If you want to have surf and turf, cook the steak first (refer to my perfectly grilled steak recipe). When the meat is resting, grill the shrimps.
I learned my lesson in a hard way. First time when I made shrimp on the Barbie, I threaded 6-7 shrimps with one skewer. Everything worked out fine until I flipped the skewers over to the other side. Well, the shrimps spin on their own. Can you imagine standing next to a hot grill and struggling with the spinning shrimps?
So, I used double skewers next time. Huh...it did the trick. All the shrimps stay in place no matter how I turned the skewers. It may take a bit longer to thread through the shrimps. But it is so worth it. Less headache and frustration later.
Using skewers helps when you have a big crowd and guests. Everybody can just grab and move on to the next plate.
To make this shrimp on the Barbie crazily quick, use a grill basket. All you need to do is to marinate and cook.
