  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
Remoulade Sauce
  • 1/2 cup mayonaise
  • 1 tbsp spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tbsp relish

Shrimp On The Barbie
  1. Thread your shrimp close together on a skewer. If using wooded, soak them in water for 10 minutes before threading the shrimp. If you use metal, like I do, skip straight to threading the shrimp.
  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat with the minced garlic. Add all other ingredients except shrimp.

  3. Brush one side of the shrimp with garlic butter mixture.
  4. Grill over medium heat for 3 minutes butter face down. Brush uncooked side with garlic butter. Turn and cook for an additional 3 minutes until opaque and pinked.
Remoulade Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until well combined.  Serve alongside shrimp.

Recipe Notes

Always use raw shrimp for this recipe - if you opt for previously cooked your shrimp will turn out tough after cooking on the grill.
