Today we tried a recipe for shrimp on the bbq ….I have wanted to try grilling shrimp for a while now. This recipe had a nice sweet flavor, but it’s not something I’d fix very often. It wasn’t hard to assemble or anything like that – it was quite simple. The problem with this recipe is that it just didn’t fit our tastes that much…I think the sweetness of the marinate just didn’t work for us but it might be fabulous to your tastebuds! Note that the warning about the fire is true, so be careful!

Below is the original recipe (we made no alterations except to forgo the bacon)

2 pounds LARGE shrimp, uncooked, pull the skin/tails off
1 finely chopped onion
1 cup olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp cayenne peper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
Optionally a pound-o-bacon

In a large bowl, mix everything togather (except bacon) and then add
shrimp. Leave it in the fridge overnight (PREFERABLE) or at least
for several hours. Flip occasionally to distribute shrimp marinade.
Pull out from fridge an hour or so beforehand to let things
warm/loosen up a bit.

The next day, preheat your bbq grill while skewering the shrimp.
Optionally place flat on a fine-screen mesh cookware - less work!
Wrap in bacon and grill. Be careful about flames from the dripping
marinade. Serve over rice, pasta, or as-is ... but be sure to d
rip some marinade on 'em!
