Colossal shrimp is one of the largest sizes of shrimp that you can buy in the grocery store.. That means in a one pound you’ll only get about 9 shrimp. The cooking times for this recipe are based on colossal size shrimp. If you get a smaller shrimp size, lower the cooking time.
One of my favorite marinades for seafood and chicken is lemon and garlic. When you use these ingredients it is best to use fresh lemons and fresh garlic, then crush them together with other spices to allow the flavors to come through.
Yes! Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least 10 minutes or up to 30 minutes before skewering on the meat and placing them on the grill.
Preheat grill to 400º Fahrenheit. When the grill is at least 400º Fahrenheit, this will help prevent the shrimp (or any other meat) from sticking to the grill.
Grill for 4-5 minutes per side or until it is pink and no longer gray.
Colossal size shrimp will take about 4-5 minutes per side. The color should be opaque and no longer gray, but they should also feel firm to the touch.
Although you may not think to pull out an internal temperature probe thermometer, you can do that and test the temperature of the shrimp. It should read 165º Fahrenheit.
We like to serve grilled shrimp with a side salad or over a bed of rice (or even cauliflower rice). If you’re following a low carb eating plan you could serve our paleo broccoli slaw or roasted asparagus.
