Grilled Shrimp

Seafood is always a delight!  We enjoy it at home every chance we get but at our vacation home we indulge even more.  As they say when in Rome do as the Romans do!  Florida is almost synonymous with seafood so there is no end to finding great fish and seafood like crab legs and shrimp.   There is just no end of the opportunities to indulge on seafood!

My husband picked up cooked, tail on shrimp to grill as an appetizer with our New Year's steak dinner.  Shrimp can be purchased pre-cooked or cooked, peeled or unpeeled, fresh or frozen.  It is usually served by the count if frozen as in 36/45 per pound or simply by the pound fresh.  Both cooked and uncooked shrimp can be grilled.  Grilling imparts a slight smokiness to the shrimp while adding gorgeous flavour.

Peel the shrimp if necessary and remove tails.  Thread the shrimp onto skewers. If using cooked shrimp it should be warmed through just until grill marks appear.  If using uncooked shrimp, grill until the shrimp is pink with characteristic grill marks.  Carefully remove from the skewers.  Serve on a bed of leaf lettuce with seafood cocktail sauce garnished with a couple of thin wedges of lemon.
