I LUV BIG SHRIMP!
Happy Memorial Day People!
Yes, once again, I am grilling. I love being outside and I love the sun and that means I love a good barbeque.
Today is all about my Hot Spicy BBQ Shrimp.
You all know Big Goo by now, but what you don’t know is Big Goo can be a little “frugal.” AKA CHEAP!
I told him I am cooking shrimp and he volunteered to go pick them up at the store.
Which means I had to write him a note stating, “don’t come home with no baby shrimp.”
It only took 20 years people, but guess what, he listened. He finally bought some big shrimp and I didn’t have to send him back to the store twice to accomplish this.
This is a really simple but tasty dish. Clean your shrimp, leave the tail on for the pretty, pretty…Put everything in a large bowl.
I used olive oil, extra virgin of course, lemon zest and juice, don’t forget all my special seasoning and some good barbeque sauce.
Mix everything up and place in individual foil packets and wrap them up and let’s get to grilling people. I added some extra veggies in my packets.
After about 10 minutes, look at what we have here.
Oh did I mention I made stuffed potatoes to go with dish! Yep, and take that extra gravy and pour on top of the potatoes. Now were cooking people!
