CHIMICHURRI GRILLED SHRIMP

DAVE AND BUSTER’S CHIMICHURRI GRILLED SHRIMP

 

 

Ingredients for Chimichurri Grilled Shrimp Skewers:

¨      Shrimp Skewers (each skewer has 5 shrimp) as needed, usual amount would be 2 skewers per person for an entrée.

¨      Chimichurri sauce- see separate recipe, 2 tablespoons per skewer, as needed.

¨      Melted garlic butter, 1 tbls per skewer

¨      Salad oil to spray on grill, as needed to prevent sticking.

 

Preparation:

¨      Place some of the well stirred chimichurri sauce into a dish large enough to fit the shrimp skewers in. Save some sauce to serve with the shrimp or for other recipe uses.

¨      Dip skewers of shrimp into chimichurri sauce making sure to coat both sides of the shrimp well. Refrigerate for up to 2 hours before using so sauce has time to flavor the shrimp.

¨      Preheat grill and clean grill well, spray or brush some salad oil onto grill to prevent food from sticking to it during cooking.

¨      Place marinated shrimp skewers onto grill and grill until first side is cooked, making nice grill marks.

¨      Baste shrimp with melted garlic butter, and turn skewers over to cook other side. Grill until just cooked through, do not overcook shrimp or it will get tough.

¨      Baste shrimp with more melted garlic butter and remove from grill.

¨      Serve shrimp over your favorite vegetable pasta recipe, we prepare a cavatappi pasta with a sauce of sauteed fresh spinach, artichoke hearts, roasted red peppers, capers, basil and lemon.

¨      Note; Chimichurri is an excellent sauce and marinade traditionally used on steaks, goes well with chicken and all types of seafood.
