Brinkmann Grilled Orange Chili Shrimp Skewers

Friday, May 21, 2010 @ 08:05 AM

This is a great (and one of my favorite) summer appetizer for the grill.

1/2 cup of orange juice(if you’re doing fresh about 2 oranges)

1\2 cup fresh cilantro

1 tbsp Asian red chili paste

1\4 cup oil,preferably extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic

3 scallions,green parts only

1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce

1\2 tsp salt( optional)

2 lbs extra large shrimp,shelled and deveined

Skewers(if wood skewers soak in water or O.J. for an hour prior to cooking)

This recipe is why I always bring a small food processor with a metal blade with me when tailgating.

In small food processor, put orange juice, cilantro, chili paste, oil, garlic, scallion greens, chipotle, & salt.

Blend until smooth.

Put shrimp in a zipper baggie and pour the O.J. mixture over the shrimp.

Marinate in the fridge or an ice filled cooler for 2-3 hours. No Longer!

Remove shrimp from the marinade & place on skewers.(If you want to be less messy, and you have the room to do it, pre-skewer the shrimp, place in a low shallow foil pan, pour marinade over the top, and set in fridge that way for 2-3 hours.)

Toss the remaining marinade.

Grill shrimp over medium high heat on your Brinkmann grill, 3-4 minutes per side. (I like to use the top cooking surface & close the lid.But don’t walk away!)

Remove from heat & serve immediately.

I like to just hand out individual skewers to people & let them have at it!
