Brined and Grilled Shrimp

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Saw this on another forum and just had to try it. Someone else's idea my execution.

I think the best shrimp I have ever made. Next time gonna try them on the smoker.

Had friends over and they had to get the recipe.

Will do shrimp this way from now on.

 

Brine:

•2 cups water
•1/4 cup Kosher salt
•1/4 cup sugar
•1/4 cup Zatarain’s Crawfish, Shrimp and Crab Boil
•2 cups of ice
Bring the water to a boil and then add the seasonings and the ice.

Once it has cooled, add shrimp and allow to brine for 20-25 mintues.

 

After the brine I rinsed the 2-3 times, dried them and put 2 skewers thru them.

 

 

Cooked them 2 min per side on our new Weber gas grill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

thanks for looking

Looks great! It's funny, I never would have thought about brining shrimp, but I saw a very similar recipe on TV a few years back and tried it. The difference is night and day. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah this is a takeoff of an Episode of Good Eats entitled Crustacean Nation.

Sure were good.

There are from Costco. Size is 16-20. Really like the size, at least you feel like you are eating something.
