Peel n Eat Shrimp

For those of you who have an instant pot, it makes this dish so easy. You can pre cook the corn and the potatoes in the instant pot in minutes and then they are ready for the grill.

I like to serve this meal on a wood board lined with paper and just let everyone eat with their hands. You want to have some good bread grilled so that you can mop up all the delicious flavors.

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 pounds large shrimp or prawns, deveined but not shelled

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

In a large bowl, mix the paprika with the ancho chile powder, brown sugar, cumin, salt, pepper and garlic. Add the shrimp and toss to coat in the spices.

Cook the shrimp in a cast iron skillet or sheet pan on a preheated BBQ grill. Heat the oil in a large skillet or sheet pan until shimmering. Add the shrimp to the skillet and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until curled and white throughout, about 4 minutes. Add the butter to the skillet and swirl the butter in. Transfer the shrimp / prawns to a platter garnish with fresh parsley & lemon and serve.

pan to cool.

Meanwhile, in a food processor combine the butter, chives, cilantro,

shallots, sriracha, salt, lime zest and juice. Pulse until well combined.

Cook on high for 8 – 10 minutes. When timing is up manually release

the pressure and let the potatoes cool on a sheet pan.            

Place your potatoes on a BBQ roasting pan, or disposable foil pan or

create a foil packet.

Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes and toss them around so that

the potatoes get well coated. Season with salt and pepper, add the

rosemary and garlic over the potatoes give them another good toss..

grill for 15 – 20 minutes until crispy and golden brown.

Serve the shrimp, corn & potatoes with warm grilled ciabatta or
