    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.

    Crazy

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