Spicy BBQ Grilled Shrimp



As often as we eat shrimp I am shocked, dismayed actually, that I've not coated shrimp with BBQ sauce before. And I call myself a cook? What?%$#@*

Moving on...Grilling and shrimp go together like no one's business. BBQ sauce on shrimp with a little blue cheese dressing to dip in is heavenly. Try it, you'll like it!

Spicy BBQ Grilled Shrimp

2 pounds of extra jumbo shrimp
1 cup of hot BBQ sauce
lemon for garnishing
blue cheese dressing for dipping

Marinate the shrimp in the BBQ sauce for about 20 minutes. While you're waiting for the shrimp to marinate, get your grill screaming hot. (We like nice grill marks ;)

Carefully place the shrimp on the grill. Grill for about 2 minutes per side. Shorter time if your shrimp isn't extra jumbo. Serve with a side of blue cheese dressing for dunking.

  5. Jackie, I'm sure it would still be great if you cooked it on the stovetop in a lightly oiled skillet.
