This week, our friend Jeanette shares her delicious and easy summer Grilled Shrimp recipe. Nothing better that fresh shrimp on the grill. This recipe has minimum prep with a surprise Thai taste twist. We’ve halved the the soy sauce and oyster sauce to make it a healthy dish without sacrificing flavor.
Grilled Thai Shrimp with Garlic Sauce
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
1 pound jumbo shrimp (Jeanette prefers white shrimp), shells on
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
8 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Using a sharp knife, carefully butterfly shrimp, cutting shrimp through the shell (start just above the tail, and cut through the middle of the shrimp until you reach the end) and removing the vein. Flatten shrimp with the palm of your hand. The shrimps should lie flat. Mix Garlic Sauce ingredients together. Marinade shrimp in Garlic Sauce for 20 minutes. Lightly oil a large piece of aluminum foil. Place shrimp in a single layer on top of foil. Grill until just cooked through, flipping shrimp halfway through cooking, about 3-4 minutes per side.
