Snappy Shrimp

by Amanda Schaffner

  • 12-18 jumbo shrimp, raw (shells on)
  • 1 tbsp. Frank’s Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Juice from 1 lemon

Combine all ingredients in either a bowl or plastic storage bag. Make sure marinade is evenly distributed (including underneath the shrimps’ shells). Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Skewer 3-4 shrimps lengthwise. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water first 20 minutes. Place shrimp skewer on a pre-heated BBQ (highest temperature possible) for approximately 3 minutes on each side, or until shrimp are no longer translucent. Serve immediately. Yields 4 servings.
